Armenian Libertarian-Socialist Movement

Global, Caucasian and Armenian politics in anarchist perspective

Noam Chomsky on human destiny

Posted by Sasuntsi Anarchist on February 10, 2007

Chomsky speaks about human destiny – (2 minutes)

“In this possibly terminal phase of human existence democracy and freedom are more than values to be treasured.  They may well be essential to survival.”

Noam Chomsky is officially the most quoted intellectual alive.  Some regard him as the greatest philosopher remaining.  …oh, and he is also an anarchist, or as he sometimes refers to himself, a “Libertarian-Socialist”.

I’m deeply disappointed by the level at which the contemporary debates and thinking about Armenian politics is taking place (especially within the political arena): siege mentality, political miaopia, decontextualized demagoguery and populism.  But we cannot hope to begin to understand the roots of our condition and the direction in which our country is being draged, without placing Armenian politics in the contexts of global processes and historical perspectives.  

Here are 2 more very short videos – a food for thought:

US is not a democracy

  1. Well the call should rather be: get all troops out of Iraq. And out of everywhere else.

    You are perfectly right my Arab Comrade! I concur with you in solidarity. I am ashamed that Armenian State participates in this most-artificial “Coalition” in exchange for military aid ($5-10million/year) and military training. Even if Armenia sends only 47 troops to Iraq and even if they are mostly stationed idle in the most calm regions, it is still a matter of principle. This is not an invasion by a coalition of many countries, but only 1 hegemonic global-bully.
