An outstandingly sane and civilised man, Noam Chomsky, interviewed by Jeremy Paxman

We are greatly indebted to Media Lens for recommending and giving a link to this interview. 

The video shows an unedited version of Jeremy Paxman’s Newsnight interview with Professor of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), philosopher, cognitive scientist and political activist, Noam Chomsky. 

 

Chomsky’s masterly exposition includes: 

  • the issues surrounding the ’Arab Spring’
  • Obama’s record
  • Israel/Palestine
  • attempts to control the internet
  • nuclear weapons
  • climate change
  • and the ‘efficient market’ proposition which he sees as sheer fanaticism.
