Noam Chomsky is a brilliant thinker and has quite a following internationally. But in the US it is difficult to find his copious writing in our daily press. This book includes essays that were published in 2013 and 2014. They remind us how much the news has changed just in the short time since Mr. Trump has been elected. The issues of just a few years ago seem to pale by comparison in to the potential for chaos that we seem to face today. As you read some of the early essays that are included you will see evidence of the Trump politics lurking not so far in the background. Chomsky seems to have foreseen the drama and politics of the past year.Why do I give this book only three stars? Even though it was published in 2015 it has been forcibly outdated by the rise of Trump. And since you wont find Chomsky in any of the local or national press you have to find links on Twitter to locate his outpouring of current words and analysis. I listened to this book on audible and was not impressed by the reader. While Chomsky raises alarm after alarm about what is happening in the world, the reader is way too calm and sedate. I want to hear some reflection of the terrifying things that are going on in the world. Regrettably I think Chomsky himself mimics that calm and self-assured style. Chomsky talks about near cataclysmic incidents with our nuclear arsenals almost accidentally being unleashed. He talks about the most feared countries in the Middle East being Israel and the US. Iran is portrayed by the US so negatively and yet in the Middle East it is the US not Iran that is feared.Chomsky ends the book talking about climate change. And here comes the end of the world again. And you know I almost always agree with Chomsky. He speaks for the Palestinians. He criticized Obama. Why dont more people listen to Chomsky?https://politics1660.wordpress.com/20...
