Noam Chomsky: “fortunately, there is one Western statesman of stature, who is pushing for a diplomatic solution to the war in Ukraine rather than looking for ways to fuel and prolong it. His name is Donald J. Trump"

Noam Chomsky, in an interview this week, says "fortunately" there is "one Western statesman of stature" who is pushing for a diplomatic solution to the war in Ukraine rather than looking for ways to fuel and prolong it. "His name is Donald J. Trump," Chomsky says.


"Let's tell the truth," Chomsky says.

Chomsky says he regards Trump as a deeply dangerous figure, yet he is "the one statesman in the West who has said it, and it's the right way out."

Noam Chomsky on the Russia-Ukraine war, The Media, Propaganda, Orwell, Newspeak and Language

Noam Chomsky shines his light on the Russia-Ukraine war, the role of the media, propaganda, censorship in education, Orwell, Newspeak and language. Is there hop for human kind? Does Chomsky think there is light at the end of the tunnel?

He talks about his father who was born in Ukraine and lived there for 17 years before immigrating to the U.S. About his mother who was born in Belarussia and about the importance of Jewish culture and literature in his family. About the total annihilation of his extended family in Europe and some early memories about his parents.

We talk about Orwell, Animal Farm, Newspeak and the ministry of information. How Orwell's writings are still relevant for today.

His book Manufacturing Consent is accurate to this day. We briefly discuss the propaganda model and how the media is used in order to manufacture public consent for wars. And finally we talk about retrieving reliable information from reliable sources. How does professor Chomsky gets his information? How does he assess the reliability of an information source?

Noam Chomsky is a living legend. Arguably the most important intellectual alive today. One of the few public intellectuals speaking truth to power. 

The father of modern linguistics. But above all, an intellectual of the people, who isn't too proud talking to people with a very small fanbase. He doesn't consider himself a famous person who should be treated with velvet gloves and admiration. Chomsky is a justice worrier and he is on a mission. Noam Chomsky is a living treasure and I can only hope that he may continue his mission for many years to come.
