For more than half a century, the United States has been pursuing a grand imperial strategy with the aim of staking out the globe. Our leaders have shown themselves willing, as in the Cuban missile crisis, to follow the dream of dominance no matter how high the risks. Now the Bush administration is intensifying this process, driving us toward the final frontiers of imperial control, toward a choice between the prerogatives of power and a livable Earth.

Saying No to Noam

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-03-04

Noam Chomsky is probably a brilliant intellectual, brilliant enough to draw amazingly ludicrous conclusions about the world today and America's role in the world. Chomsky has spent his entire life in the academic world and has a rather distorted view of the real world. Perhaps Neville Chamberlain was one of Noam's heroes. Don't waste your time on this one. Hegemony??? Give me a break.
