About this deal

Chomsky details how the US interferes with foreign countries, how it uses propaganda, obfuscating language and outright lies to get away with it, how the media is complicit in much of this, and the ultimate goals towards which it is working. All kinds of non scientific expressions like 'intent', how can you proof intent; intent is interpretation most often.

HWW is actually a collection of four abridged books, some of which are interviews with Chomsky, others of which are books that had been written by Chomsky. strength lies in the society, unite (for whatever cause) and participate if you want to see any change in the world. If, as John Dewey put it seventy years ago, “Politics is the shadow cast on society by big business,” how have they pulled off “capital’s clear subjugation of labor,” and taken such firm control of both Americans in general, including the ones so subjugated, and the political process in particular? To be honest, though, the book may be helpful for Americans, accustomed to living under the smog of right wing ideology and terrified of bogies like the word sshhh socialism, but for any European socialist (which let's say includes British ones) much of what Chomsky says is just common sense and fairly mild, however much it may upset people. Any nation or leader that attempts an alternate path, especially that is good for the people in the long term, is at the receiving end of many deterrents - local and international - acting in the interest of the US.It is very easy to see why he's mostly ignored in the US media, but he keeps not giving up, which is a good thing for everyone (except the few benefiting hugely from the system). And it takes a certain level of time and vigilance and social change and action to make any difference in these issues.

Chomsky is credited with the creation of the theory of generative grammar, considered to be one of the most significant contributions to the field of linguistics made in the 20th century. Chomsky'nin dili agir olsa da, Amerika'nin dunyada kimlere neden dusmanlik guttugunu onlarca ornekle aciklamasi acisindan cok faydali.The interview format serves some of the same ends as a severe editor working to keep him on topic - and yet Chomsky still reels from one thing to another in his own inimitable way. It is not greed, because once you are the richest nation on the planet or individually worth more than 100 billion dollars, but will still do almost anything for more, greed is no longer rational or relevant.

I would love to learn it, since I do think that Chomsky has a lot of useful things to say, but as put in the form of this book "How the world works", it is pretty useless for me.With the Soviet deterrent gone, the US is much more free to use violence around the world, a fact that has been recognized with much satisfaction by the US policy analysts in the past several years. This book is a compilation of interviews and speeches largely focused on political theory, covering a wide range of topics from NAFTA to East Timor. The basic idea of free trade is that people be able to exchange goods and services without the outside influence of governments or thieves. More importantly he demonstrates that this is by no accident and identifies a clear and publicly available documentary trail of the public policy decisions that explicitly set this corrupt system in place and maintains it today. F. Skinner's Verbal Behavior, in which he challenged the behaviorist approach to the study of behavior and language dominant in the 1950s.
