Read online Government in the Future.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Government in the Future In this classic talk delivered at the Poetry Center New York on February Noam Chomsky articulates a clear uncompromising vision of social change Chomsky contrasts the classical liberal libertarian socialist state socialist and state capitalist world views and then defends a libertarian socialist vision as the proper and natural extension of classical liberalism into the era of advanced industrial society In his stirring conclusion Chomsky argues We have today the technical and material resources to meet man s animal needs We have not developed the cultural and moral resources or the democratic forms of social organization that make possible the humane and rational use of our material wealth and power Conceivably the classical liberal ideals as expressed and developed in their libertarian socialist form are achievable But if so only by a popular revolutionary movement rooted in wide strata of the population and committed to the elimination of repressive and authoritarian institutions state and private To create such a movement is a challenge we face and must meet if there is to be an escape from contemporary barbarism by Noam Chomsky

In Profit Over People Noam Chomsky takes on neoliberalism the pro corporate system of economic and political policies presently waging a form of class war worldwide By examining the contradictions between the democratic and market principles proclaimed by those in power and those actually practiced Chomsky critiques the tyranny of the few that restricts the public arena and enacts policies that vastly increase private wealth often with complete disregard for social and ecological consequences Combining detailed historical examples and uncompromising criticism Chomsky offers a profound sense of hope that social activism can reclaim people s rights as citizens rather than as consumers redefining democracy as a global movement not a global market, div div div b It s hard to imagine any American reading this book and not seeing his country in a new and deeply troubling light i The New York Times Book Review i b div div br The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene militarily against failed states around the globe In this much anticipated follow up to his international bestseller i Hegemony or Survival i Noam Chomsky turns the tables showing how the United States itself shares features with other failed states suffering from a severe democratic deficit eschewing domestic and international law and adopting policies that increasingly endanger its own citizens and the world Exploring the latest developments in U S foreign and domestic policy Chomsky reveals Washington s plans to further militarize the planet greatly increasing the risks of nuclear war He also assesses the dangerous consequences of the occupation of Iraq documents Washington s self exemption from international norms including the Geneva conventions and the Kyoto Protocol and examines how the U S electoral system is designed to eliminate genuine political alternatives impeding any meaningful democracy div div br Forceful lucid and meticulously documented i Failed States i offers a comprehensive analysis of a global superpower that has long claimed the right to reshape other nations while its own democratic institutions are in severe crisis Systematically dismantling the United States pretense of being the world s arbiter of democracy i Failed States i is Chomsky s most focused and urgent critique to date div div div, Two of the twentieth century s most influential thinkers debate a perennial question br In at the height of the Vietnam War and at a time of great political and social instability two of the world s leading intellectuals Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault were invited by Dutch philosopher Fons Edlers to debate an age old question is there such a thing as innate human nature independent of our experiences and external influences br The resulting dialogue is one of the most original provocative and spontaneous exchanges to have occurred between contemporary philosophers and above all serves as a concise introduction to their basic theories What begins as a philosophical argument rooted in linguistics Chomsky and the theory of knowledge Foucault soon evolves into a broader discussion encompassing a wide range of topics from science history and behaviorism to creativity freedom and the struggle for justice in the realm of politics br In addition to the debate itself this volume features a newly written introduction by noted Foucault scholar John Rajchman and includes additional text by Noam Chomsky, In Noam Chomsky comments on the September th attacks the new war on terrorism Osama bin Laden U S involvement with Afghanistan media control and the long term implications of America s military attacks abroad Informed by his deep understanding of the gravity of these issues and the global stakes demonstrates Chomsky s impeccable knowledge of U S foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia and sheds light on the rapidly shifting balance of world power Speaking out against escalating violence Chomsky critically examines the United States own foreign policy record and considers what international institutions might be employed against underground networks and national states accused of terrorism s analysis still stands as a measure of how well the media is able to serve its role of informing the citizenry so crucial to our democracy in times of war
