Program Title: Noam Chomsky - The U.S. Rules the World
Description: Many years ago, I heard a Noam Chomsky lecture in which he compared U.S. foreign policy to the way the mafia operates. That caught the audience’s attention. Everyone had seen The Godfather movie. Chomsky went on to explain that obedience to the Godfather was non-negotiable. Do what you’re told, and you’ll not only be protected but richly rewarded. And if you step out of line, the Godfather will come down on you. So it is with U.S. foreign policy. Dissent is not tolerated. Cuba, Nicaragua, Iran, Chile, Indonesia, and other countries with politics and systems that defied Washington have felt the wrath of U.S. power. The U.S. rules the world.

Featured Speakers/Guests: Noam Chomsky, the legendary scholar-activist, has been a leading voice for peace and social justice for many decades. Noted independent journalist John Pilger says, “Noam Chomsky is an enduring inspiration all over the world for the simple reason that he is a truth-teller on an epic scale.” At 92, he continues to write and speak on public issues. Author of scores of books, his latest are Consequences of Capitalism and Climate Crisis & the Global Green New Deal.
