Synopsis

Synopsis

Chomsky observes the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a "Path to a Better World," while chronicling how far off the trail the United States is with respect to actual political practice and conduct. Analysing the contradictions of U.S. power while illustrating the real progress won by sustained popular struggle, Chomsky cuts through official political rhetoric to examine how the United States not only violates the UD, but at times uses it as a weapon to wield against designated enemies.

About Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky - The Umbrella of U.S. Power

NOAM CHOMSKY is known throughout the world for his political and philosophical writings, as well as for his groundbreaking work in linguistics. A professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1955, Chomsky first gained recognition for his theory of generative grammar, which drew attention to the syntactic universality of all human languages. But it is as a critic of unending war, corporate control and neoliberalism that Chomsky has become one of the country’s most well known public intellectuals. He is the author of Profit Over People: Neoliberalism and Global Order, 9-11: Was There an Alternative? and over forty other books. To this day Chomsky remains an active and uncompromising voice of dissent.
