In a recent Interview with The Hill (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWhbSKlN3fE; obtained on 9-3-2020) conducted by Krystal Ball, Noam Chomski, age 91, explains how this moment in history is unique. He identifies how the US has failed to respond to the pandemic well versus other countries in the world such as many countries in Europe.
He opines: “Get rid of the Trump malignancy which will destroy us and then challenge the democratic party establishment…” when asked about how the left can best respond in the aftermath of the defeat of Bernie Sanders as a Democratic Party Candidate.
Noam Chomsky outlines current dangers which include Nuclear War, environmental destruction, and the pandemic and possible future biological threats. His insights encompassing both a historical perspective and action needed indicate that decisions made now are particularly important in “Yes, this moment is unique.” His prescriptions and analyses are timely as the world faces in his words a “confluence” of problems.
Noam Chomsky deserves The Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal—unique for a self identified US dissident. The only question is not if but when.
