IN THIS EXCLUSIVE new VIDEO interview with The Real News Network, chief correspondent Paul Jay probes Noam Chomsky’s views on the nature of the US party system and the logic of voting “the lesser evil.”
Chomsky says while it’s true that the two parties are essentially like factions of one party – the party of business – the differences do matter [in the long run] to ordinary people. If you are living in a swing state, there is nothing wrong with picking the lesser of two evils.
A left libertarian, Noam Chomsky has written and lectured widely on linguistics, philosophy, intellectual history, contemporary issues, international affairs and U.S. foreign policy. His analyses of how the US/Western media provide a cover for glaring hypocrisies in our international behavior have become indispensable resources for those wishing to understand the wide gap between image and flattering reality.
