Noam Chomsky talks about "State Spying and Other Matters" with host David Barsamian
Alternative Radio host David Barsamian recently interviewed noted scholar and professor Noam Chomsky about "State Spying and Other Matters." Chomsky puts the Snowden revelations in the context of historical government spying. “If technology,” he says, “or other means of control and domination are available, then power systems are going to use them.” Chomsky relates the continuities between Bush and Obama in foreign and domestic policies. He examines Obama’s assault on civil liberties and the prosecution of whistleblowers. Israel, Palestine, events in Turkey and Syria are also discussed, along with the pitfalls of third parties in the U.S. and much more.
