Civilization versus Barbarism? : An Interview with Noam Chomsky

M. Junaid Alam with Noam Chomsky

On December 17th, /Left Hook/ co-editor M. Junaid Alam met with
Professor Noam Chomsky at his MIT office to get his thoughts on the
ideological justifications and historical realities behind America's
"war on terror." Professor Chomsky spent a half-hour taking apart the
framework of "civilization" versus "barbarism," pointing to Western and
particularly US state-sponsored atrocities, laying out the grave nature
of war crimes committed in Iraq, attacking the intellectual culture
which sanctions massive suffering, and explaining the elite's knowledge
of the roots of terrorism. Below is the audio link and then the
transcript for the interview.
