My interview with Noam Chomsky. We talk about ethical compromises, and government actions without vision or wisdom which is creating terrible consequences and feedback loops. We also talk about the Drone killings, the US terrorist manufacturing campaigns, the dangerous indoctrination and conditioning of soldiers and the public, Navy Seals killing Bin Laden who was only a suspect and the Polio vaccine horror in Pakistan resulting from the fake vaccine programme used to find Bin Laden. We cover the Sadistic Guantanamo torture, we talk of fear, and the great danger of our government and our own collective psychosis...and more.
Tune in tonight as I chat with Noam Chomsky, noted philosopher, political critic, activist and long-time professor at MIT. Noam has written extensively on politics, war, corporatism and the mass media. Prof. Chomsky has been described as a prominent cultural fiture and he was voted the "world's top public intellectual in 2005." Topics might include: His views on the role of feminism in today's society, government repression and our loss of civil liberties, including Obama's continuation of the Patriot Act. What he thinks of the Affordable Health Care Act, his views on the distinction, if any, between Democrats vs Republicans. I'll inquire if thinks Americans are being primed for a new war and what we as citizens can do to stem the tide of losing worker rights, voting rights, women's rights and the dumbing down of America.
Crossing the threshold into the second half of the show, Layne Redmond, beloved drummer and author of the book, When the Drummers Were Women, returns to tell us about her new project - the Sacred Path of the Bee and the awakening of Bee Priestesses in contemporary times.

Yanis Varoufakis considers himself a politician by necessity, not by choice. An economist and academic by training, he became Greece’s finance minister amidst the country's financial crisis, creating an image for himself both beloved and reviled. He discusses his complicated role in his new book, And the Weak Suffer What They Must?: Europe's Crisis and America's Economic Future, and on the LIVE stage alongside renowned academic and theorist Noam Chomsky. YANIS VAROUFAKIS is the former finance minister of Greece. A professor of economic theory at the University of Athens and former member of parliament for Athens’ largest constituency, he is the author of The Global Minotaur, among other books. He lives in Athens. NOAM CHOMSKY is widely credited with having revolutionized the field of modern linguistics. Chomsky is the author of numerous best-selling political works, which have been translated into scores of countries worldwide. Among his most recent books are Hegemony or Survival, Failed States, Hopes and Prospects, and Masters of Mankind. Haymarket Books recently released twelve of his classic works in new editions. His latest books are What Kind of Creatures Are We? And Who Rules the World?
Once again, I am thrilled and honored to bring Noam Chomsky to Wild Wild Left Radio. Professor Emeritus at MIT, linguist, political activist and philosopher, author of over 100 books, and winner of this year's Global Exchange Human Rights Award, Noam is arguably one of the best and most dedicated minds of our generation.
Noam has called Snowden a hero, adding his name on the petition to Ecuador President Rafael Correa to grant political asylum to him. He has publicly stated that the NSA considers the primary enemy of the US to be we, the US citizens.
Tonight, he joins us to give his thoughts about the surveillance state, Snowden, and the freedom of reporters like Glenn Greenwald to report the illegal activities of our own government without fear.

This program deals with the resurgence of a Free Speech movement, constitutional rights in the age of surveillance, the right and even responsibility to alert the public about wrongdoing, the expansion of powers and privileges the government is claiming; and the point of view that rights to privacy exist to protect the minority against the majority.
