Description

What lay behind the Irangate/Contra scandals? What does the public exposure of these events signify for American politics? What are the forces that bring about a US foreign policy based on robbery and exploitation? And how does the media comply by obscuring the consequences of this "culture of terrorism"? This companion to "Turning the Tide" by Chomsky examines these and other questions, providing a critique of US political culture. He concludes that the US international security policy has as its primary goal the preservation of the freedom to rob, dominate, exploit and ensure that the existing privilege is protected and advanced. His message of hope, however, reminds the reader that resistance is possible and that effort and personal initiative can constrain state violence in the name of freedom, democracy and justice. Noam Chomsky has also written "The Fateful Triangle".show more
