Program Title: Noam Chomsky – Censorship, Free Speech & the Media
Description: States want to dominate the narrative with their version of events. There are two basic models. One follows Aldous Huxley, the other George Orwell. The latter is best known for 1984. Big Brother is brutal. He wields a big stick while Huxley uses a much softer carrot. Censorship is self-imposed because the journalist knows the boundaries of permissible thought. Essential assumptions are embedded unconsciously so they don’t even rise to the level of being challenged. The Huxley model is more subtle and relies on persuasion and getting people to focus on trivialities. Orwell is straight-out coercion. Sing the tune I’ve told you to or else.

Featured Speakers/Guests: Noam Chomsky, the legendary scholar-activist, has been a leading voice for peace and social justice for many decades. The New Statesman calls him “the conscience of the American people.” Author of scores of books, among his latest are Consequences of Capitalism, Chronicles of Dissent and Notes on Resistance.
