Program Title:
Force and opinion : the new world order at home and abroad / Noam Chomsky.
PRA Archive #: 

Noam Chomsky, noted MIT linguist and foreign policy analyst, speaks on the types of governments and the methods by which they secure a people's obedience. Democratic ideals, he argues, have been subverted to support the goals of the power elite. The primary means for securing obedience are fear, decepiton and diversion. All economies are autocratic, for there is not public control of the productive forces. The subversion of Democratic ideals can be seen in United States foreign policy, which systematically suppresses any efforts at true Democracy in the Third World. We favor totalitarian governments, for they represent "stability" to United States economic interests.
