Noam Chomsky, well known worldwide as one of the most important philosophers and linguists nowadays, gave a very interesting lecture last Thursday in Boston at an event entitled: “What´s next? Creating Another World in a Time of War, Empire and Devastation” organized by Massachusetts Global Action.

Chomsky gave a complete political picture of the current situation in the world: from Iraq and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict to the American paper democracy and the recently created Anti-Neoliberal Front in Latin America.

Important excerpts from his lecture were broadcasted by DEMOCRACY NOW! today.

Footnote: Chomsky mentions Haiti´s case as an example of real democractic elections: I don´t think so. Democracy is not just a matter of mass popular presumably well infromed participation. Economical conditions, level of education and real political powers are things to be considered as well, even when I recognize that as a good beginning.
