More from Chomsky on the ’08 presidential election
Click here for a video interview with Noam Chomsky on the presidential election. While he has argued for years that the political system of the united states has one party—the Business Party—which has two factions, to hold the view that there are no differences at all between these two factions is to ignore the ways in which the the differing policies do in fact have an effect on people’s lives. Like his friend and fellow anarchist Howard Zinn, Chomsky suggests voting for Barack Obama, but without illusions, as he is clearly the lesser of two evils. Chomsky’s reflections on why universal health care has become “politically possible” are particularly insightful.
