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.

I didn't know the facts were so devastating
26 April 2005 | by (Tellus) – See all my reviews

To rate this is kind of pointless as it is just a camera pointed at a lecture at an American university where Noam Chomsky asks us who's doing the real terrorism. For its content its dynamite, that its been made available on DVD is highly praiseable. Not that I think others than those already familiar with Chomsky would have a look at it, but if they did I cant see how they could fail to see how horribly wrong the American foreign (in this case) politics are and have been since Truman dropped the A, through to the bleak Reagan period of the eighties, the Bushes and also Bill Clinton who was no angel at all. Its not fun to learn this, but there is time to be serious and time to relax. Now the time to do something is highly overdue.
