In this 25 minute interview (below), Professor Chomsky throws a monkey wrench into some of the most fundamental parts of the enveloping machinery of unquestioned propaganda that propels the West, particularly the highly insulated USA:
- What is the most dangerous, war-like country?
- Is Maoist China the worst country in terms of the number of citizens who died due to government policy?
- Is Iran really a threat, or simply being labeled as one by Western countries that want to (again) seize control of Iran’s resources and incorporate the country into the West’s empire?
- What do Western elites mean by “stabilization” and “destabilization”?
The professor also stresses the importance of creating our own media outlets (like Washington’s Blog) to counter deadly Western myths. (As the late professor Chalmers Johnson has said, like Soviet Pravda [Johnson’s comparison], “You don’t read the New York Times for the truth. You read it for the lies.” Johnson says his personal morning newspaper of choice is Antiwar.com.)
