Noam Chomsky has been cited as "America's greatest intellectual" who “makes the powerful, as well as their liberal apologists, deeply uncomfortable.” His participation in the New Left, in both intellectual and activist circles, is part of our history. Bob and Scott speak with Professor Chomsky about the history of the New Left, the anti-Vietnam movement, the Black Panthers, Feminism, the destruction of Vietnam, the Responsibility of Intellectuals and current issues including Black Lives Matter, Gaza, identity politics and wokeness.
Professor Chomsky is an American linguist, political philosopher, social critic and political activist. He is Institute Professor Emeritus in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT and Laureate Professor of Linguistics and Haury Chair in the Program in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona.
At 92, he is still active; writing and giving interviews to media all over the world. He is the author of scores of books, including American Power and the New Mandarins, Towards a New Cold War, Necessary Illusions, Hegemony or Survival, Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy and Requiem for the American Dream.
