Noam Chomsky Sociobabble Avoids Banksters in Dublin

category international | anti-capitalism | opinion/analysis author Sunday April 07, 2013 20:37author by Brian Clarke - AllVoices Report this post to the editors

Nationalize All Banking

Chomsky spent an inordinate amount of time on climate change, in Dublin, which a small part of environmental damage, resulting from the current unregulated greed of capitalism, without any sense of social responsibility particularly in contemporary Ireland.

The self-destruction of today's global Capitalist system needs to be expressed in a clear, coherent, emotionally intelligent manner, beyond the side issues of CO2, which Chomsky demonstrated a lack of courage to simply address.

Chomsky spent an inordinate amount of time on climate change, in Dublin, which a small part of environmental damage, resulting from the current unregulated greed of capitalism, without any sense of social responsibility particularly in contemporary Ireland.

Chomsky also failed to discuss the disasters created by 'Capitalism' or address possible solutions.He further failed to address banking where roughly 40% of the price of everything we purchase, from food to basic necessities likely housing, goes to financing debt to a private banking cartel which he should be quite familiar.

His undoubted awareness of the current banking issue and its the self-destruction of today's Capitalist global system and in Ireland is an obvious omission bearing in mind the time and place of his address which needs to be expressed in all its inhuman aspects, beyond the issue of CO2, which Chomsky's hesitant dialogue, demonstrated an obvious lack of passion and avoidance to confront in Dublin..

well, thanks for posting the talk.

I don't agree with your analysis though. Chomsky is getting older and appeared quite frail. I'm sure our mortality as a species is uppermost in his thoughts, partly because he probably hasn't too much time left himself, and partly because it's being sidelined in the escalating grab for resources, money and power.

The talk title was "can we survive real existing capitalism (rec)"

Survival is quite different to austerity. And clearly rec causing destruction of the environment is the thing that will kill us. It was therefore appropriate that much of the talk centred on the environment and how (rec) capitalism has damaged this and covered up it's "externalities" to the point that we may not survive. Most urgent of these "externalities" is probably global warming.

However, he did spend at least 1/3 of the talk discussing the current nature of banking, etc leading up to this issue.

You may very well be right Fred. I can be an arrogant fuck sometimes but that was just a spontaneous reaction to my first take on it. I respect what t you so I will try watch it again when I am not rushing. Keep up the good fight a chara!

You too Brian. Just know who your friends are! You need a few in this world. ;-)
Chomsky is still one of the good guys I think.

Also, sometimes it's easy to get so caught up in our own stuff that we lose sight of the big picture.

As an 'arrogant fuck' myself I can see where you're coming from Brian but right now, especially with the death of the witch, it's SO important that all of us that oppose the selfish,greedy, agenda of the neolibs, that we don't split hairs and we support our allies. The ONLY reason that they're able to get away with this shit is because their opponents are in disarray. We all have our own agendas, our own particular flavour of wrong, but without cohesion and a concerted effort to beat the bastards, we stand no chance. There isn't enough time or space for our own agendas unless we want to concede the planet and it's death (Chomsky's speech) to the NeoLiberal (NeoCon-no difference) destruction mindset then we will win the odd battle but WE CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE THE WAR.
