    ‘Noam Chomsky interview – Part II’

    https://www.rt.com/shows/on-contact/395775-noam-chomsky-neoliberalism-interview/

    “Chris Hedges travels to Cambridge, Massachusetts for a conversation with America’s most important intellectual, Professor Noam Chomsky. In Part II of their conversation, Chomsky discusses the principles of concentration of wealth and power that are defined in his latest book, ‘Requiem for the American Dream.’ ”

    …and the threat to net neutrality, a threat to democracy:

    “In this episode of the Keiser Report from Mexico City, Max & Stacy discuss the Democrats lobbying for Trump’s agenda. In the second half, Max interviews economist and journalist Guillermo Barba about Bitcoin, gold, and the Mexican economy.”

      Chomsky has done a lot of good in speaking out but beware of his limitations.

      https://www.corbettreport.com/meet-noam-chomsky-academic-gatekeeper-video/

      The question is, does his gatekeeping allow him permission to be forthright in other directions as long as he does not rock the boat in a few specific and hyper sensitive areas.

      There is a lot to hide and he appear to help out doing just that taking many of his huge following with him. He is quite irrational at times and fudges answers to questions using flawed argument.

      Relatively massive resources are poured into confusing information in those sensitive areas. Chomsky seems to comply with keeping Mum on selected hot issues.

      There is a house of cards to protect.

      Being a blinded supporter of Chomski means not seeing his gatekeeper activity and accepting all he says. Make no mistake he is highly skilled at creating a following including telling many what they want to hear.

      Apart from that he is an American steeped in acceptance of the culture along with covering for the deep state empire.

    Dear editor. Thank you for your policy description of what is acceptable for this blog.
    Briefly why is the cause of WTC destruction off limits after all it was the excuse for invasion of both Iraq and Afghanistan, and military adventurism that is still continuing with at least 1.4 million killed.
