In a wide-ranging discussion, Noam Chomsky and Chris Hedges discuss the war in Ukraine, the rising tide of global fascism, the climate catastrophe, and the role left to public intellectuals in an increasingly restrictive and censored media environment.   

Noam Chomsky is the author of more than 150 books on topics that include linguistics, the press, the inner workings of empire, and the war industry.
The Real News is an independent, viewer-supported, radical media network. 

If you take a look at the academics who are mostly moderately liberal and are in a moderately lived world that means being almost completely subordinate to an official doctrine and ideology, and they can’t go millimeter beyond. Occasional exceptions are a reflection of the pressures of activism and engagement.

And they become the attack dogs on people such as yourself and do more damage than good.
