Three short, impromptu talks by NOAM CHOMSKY on the state of America today. Chomsky brilliantly discusses
* the 1%'s attack on public education--and why they are doing it
* financial crimes that get people arrested--and the more serious ones that don't
* whether the people can change the system
The surprising answer to the third question is, Yes--they've done it before.
Chomsky's remarks are taken from a Q&A session following a talk he gave in Syracuse, NY, on November 11, 2011. This is the first radio broadcast of this material that I know of. From the video recording by Wilton Vought (othervoicesotherchoices.blogspot.com). Many thanks.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "nihil obstat") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
The title refers to a favorite quotation of Chomsky's. It's from Adam Smith's *Wealth of Nations*, Chapter 4: "All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind."
