Earlier this month, in Madison, WI, Professor Noam Chomsky reflected on:

  • His early personal exposure to anarchism and activism through people we wouldn’t today call ‘intellectuals’, but the insight of ‘everyday people’;
  • The crushing of liberation ventures by “fascism, Stalinism and liberal democracies” and the “miraculous sympathy and humanity” of the most brutally oppressed from Vietnam to Palestine to Southern Colombia;
  • His introduction to the “intellectual class” of “liberal democrat” gatekeepers during his graduate studies and its manipulation of the word “enemy” for “conquerors”, ‘radical rewrite’ of John F. Kennedy’s “legacy” to communicate him as a “dove” after the Tet Offensive, ‘liberal imperialists’  and their ‘unprincipled’ objection to the U.S. invasion of Iraq as a “strategic blunder” showing its ‘deeply rooted imperial mentality’;
  • The validity of the “Tea Party Movement”, the “big business community” and their love for Obama, the “owners of society” and how policy is engineered for “their interests”;
  • The “global shift in power” from the “workforce to multinational capital” making China a giant “assembly plant”, the financial community’s ‘rational externality’ of “systemic risk” for “institutional reasons” provided by the “Nanny State”, the “doom loop” of government bailouts that provide incentive for those in power to create “financial crises”;
  • The “moving” and “articulate”, though “ridiculed”, “manifesto” of terrorist Joe Stack before his suicide bombing (57:48):

Brother Malcolm lays out the game masters use to play their plantation against each other, form a system where the slaves fight each other for the masters’ approval, identify with the master who kills him slowly. If you still think politics is the avenue toward justice, if politicians will ever dismantle the ruling class, if becoming one with State will moralize its inherent antisocial nature, if politicians will ever really give a shit about you; if you still cling to the self-defeating belief that there’s an ounce of virtue in loving ‘your’ country, supporting ‘your’ president, exercising ‘your’ democratic opportunities by pulling a lever like a Pavlovian monkey every 2-4 years, Malcolm had something to say to you (8:32):
