Noam Chomsky On The Oligarchy

“The United States has essentially a one-party system and the ruling party is the business party,” says Chomsky. On Europe and Obama: “The European reaction to Obama is a European delusion.” As for American intellectuals, he says, Orwell had it right: intellectuals “not only do not disapprove of the crimes of their own state, but have the remarkable capacity not even to see them.”
