Who Rules the World?

by Noam Chomsky

Who Rules the World?

Noam Chomsky

Overview

Noam Chomsky, author of numerous bestselling political works, is a frequent critic of the U.S. and the disproportionate influence that corporations and the socio-economic upper class have on its policies. A professor emeritus of linguistics and philosophy at MIT, he is widely credited with having revolutionized modern linguistics.

Who Rules The World? is a collection of essays that explore American domestic and foreign policy, with an emphasis on the military transgressions committed by the U.S. government, as well as its apparent ignorance in the face of existential threats like nuclear war or global warming.

With so many important players on the global political stage, it would be more relevant to ask 'What principles and values rule the world?', a question that Chomsky explores at length.

Favorite Quote

"As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, and diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome."
