For decades famed linguist Noam Chomsky has been one of the most important political dissidents and intellectuals in the world. Now in an exclusive new interview with The Elephant, Chomsky reflects on the incredible period in human history we find ourselves in, one in which we are making decisions that will be felt for generations to come. He points out the remarkable fact that the political and economic systems we've set up, put considerations of short-term profits ahead of the very future of our species.
In our conversation, Noam Chomsky also shares his thoughts on the 2016 U.S. presidential election, what he thinks of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and why advertising has a tremendously distorting effect on our society.
