Interventions By Noam Chomsky: Review
Interventions by Noam Chomsky BANNED BY THE PENTAGON!
A mashup of noted linguist Noam Chomsky’s articles from the mid 2000’s, Interventions hits home with a simplistic theme, echoed throughout the book. That theme being: Hold the US to the same standard as the countries or powers the US deems Terrorist States.
As expected, Interventions by Noam Chomsky is hard hitting with its’ empathetic world view. The “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” thesis firmly resounds with anyone who has attended a third grade bible study.
Noam Chomsky shows the rationale of the irrational Terrorist State, and conversely exposes the irrationality of the United States’ rationale.
In Interventions, while he highlights the US citizens benefit of free speech, Chomsky urges the citizen to not only open their eyes to its government’s actions but also to not take that freedom for granted. He plainly states that the citizen basically has
“two choices. We can march forward with the confidence that the global enforcer will drive evil from the world, much as the president’s [Bush’s] speechwriter’s declare, plagiarizing ancient epics and children’s tales. Or we can subject the doctrines of the proclaimed grand new era to scrutiny, drawing rational conclusions, perhaps gaining some sense of the emerging reality.”
“Potential and concocted threats are limitless”
From US involvement in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and wars in the Middle East to North Korea and interventions in South America, Chomsky touches on it all. Seemingly genuine in his concern for the future direction of the US and the world as a whole, Noam Chomsky warns of the “Dilemmas of Dominance”.
Banned from the Guantanamo Bay library by the Pentagon presumably for its underlying and overlying message, Interventions by Noam Chomsky is a definite must read!
