Hello everyone! long time no see I understand. It’s busy me or lazy me consider it whatever you like. Clearly, I am a sloth and you already know it. Today we’re going to discuss some Noam Chomsky admiring artwork so far, How The World Works. This little article contains reviews, ratings, and quotes from the book ‘How the world works’ by Noam Chomsky.
Full name Avram Noam Chomsky was born on December 7, 1928. He is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, historian, social critic, and political activist. He is well-known as ‘The Father of Modern Linguistics’, he has a renowned figure in analytical philosophy and one of the founders of the field of cognitive science.
Noam Chomsky is the author of more than 100 books on topics such as linguistics, war, politics, and mass media. has inspired a great deal of development in fields such as mathematics and computer science and aided in developing them.
How The World Works
How the world works covers: What Uncle Sam Really Wants; The Prosperous Few and the Restless Many; Secrets, Lies and Democracy; and The Common Good—they’ve collectively sold almost 600,000 copies.
And they continue to sell year after year after year because Chomsky’s ideas become if anything, more relevant as time goes by. For example, twenty years ago he pointed out that “in 1970, about 90% of international capital was used for trade and long-term investment, more or less productive things and 10% for speculation. By 1990, those figures had reversed.” As we know, speculation continued to increase exponentially. We’re paying the price now for not heeding him them.
Quotes from the Book
“If you abandon the political arena, somebody is going to be there. Corporations aren’t going to go home and join the PTA. They are going to run things.”
“We’re supposed to believe that the press is liberal, dangerous, adversarial, out-of-control. That itself is an extremely good example of corporate propaganda.”
“In a situation of occupation or domination, the occupier, the dominant power, has to justify what it’s doing. There is only one way to do it—become a racist. You have to blame the victim. Once you become a raving racist in self-defense, you’ve lost your capacity to understand what’s happening.”
