Quotes

[first lines]
Noam Chomsky: [voiceover] The idea of the reason why the world is so disorderly is 'cause, you know, now with the cold war gone, you've got all these ethnic groups killing each other and so on. Well, as usual, it's always a good idea to start by asking about the facts. Whenever you hear anything said very confidently, the first thing that should come to mind is whether or not that's true.

The terrorist hypocrisy that is the United States
8 September 2004 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Noam Chomsky is that dry, factual, intellectual that you probably fell asleep listening to in your college classes. However, if you even begin to listen to what he is saying, you'll suddenly become angry, scared or saddened and be drawn to listen further. Unless you're thoroughly familiar with US foreign actions for the last 20 years you'll wonder how he can possibly be telling the truth half the time. However with his constant encouragement to check sources and research exactly what he's saying he'd have to be absolutely crazy to be lying about what he's saying. The US hypocrisy toward terrorism becomes obvious and you are simply left wondering why the media isn't reporting it... Now you'll have to go watch another Chomsky film called Manufacturing Consent to understand why the media are so complacent in this hypocrisy. The media has only gotten worse since that film was made (1992), so may want to check out Orwell Rolls in His Grave for a more recent treatise of the media's faults. If only half the people knew half the information Chomsky could impart to them in half an hour, the outrage would force a great positive change in the world.
