Noam Chomsky’s first broadcast interview about his book Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy.
Noam Chomsky, professor of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is one of the foremost critics of U.S. foreign policy. Professor Chomsky has just released a new book titled “Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy.” The book examines how the United States is beginning to resemble a failed state that cannot protect its citizens from violence and has a government that regards itself as beyond the reach of domestic or international law. In the book, Professor Noam Chomsky presents a series of solutions to help rescue the nation from turning into a failed state.
