Noam and the wail

The breadth of Noam Chomsky’s intellectual span has been an inspiration to my academic ambitions for as long as I could count case studies. My claws may instinctively extend in response to his views on the Iranian threat, but overall, I have faith in his perspective. Some say I have faith in too many things.

Considering his warnings of the two looming realities we will face in the future, namely nuclear war and environmental disaster, I wonder: what will the world be when I can marshal information and analysis with comparably precise and impassioned sincerity? Who will be listening? Will there still be experts and opinions, when in the past they went so unheeded?

Watch this full unedited video and come up with some questions of your own.
