Abby Martin of Telesur interviews him on the current state of politics. As usual, he paints an accurate picture, that the spectrum of political opinion has become so skewed that it only ranges from the center to the extreme right and that the current Republican party is off the spectrum and that what we have is a plutocracy with democratic forms, with the actual wishes of the public largely ignored.
He says that what is referred to as libertarianism in the US has nothing to do with traditional libertarianism but is instead an ‘ultra-right anarcho-capitalism’. He also says what is referred to as American exceptionalism is pretty much standard practice for any imperial power. All imperial powers claim that whatever they do, however despicable, is always done out of the noblest of motives. He calls the invasion of Iraq the worst crime of this century.
Listening to him, it becomes even more incredible that Sam Harris would say that he would vote for Ben Carson over Chomsky every time, given that Carson cannot string together two coherent sentences on politics.
