In the classic novel Fahrenheit 451, the author Ray Bradbury describes a future in which free independent thought is discouraged. While “firemen” burn banned books at the governments behest, the population is distracted and sedated by a combination of wall to wall interactive television, Media, Advertising and mind altering drugs. But one fireman begins to read the books he is supposed to burn. He Resists! Sound familiar?

What is Anarchism?-Noam Chomsky at MIT
Noam Chomsky spoke at MIT Wong Auditorium on November 18, 2013. The event was sponsored by the Boston Review. This event was based on the topic of Noam Chomsky’s new volume, On Anarchism. Noam Chomsky, world-renowned public intellectual and MIT Professor emeritus discussed the reasoning behind his fearless lifelong questioning of the legitimacy of entrenched power. Chomsky’s anarchism is distinctly optimistic and egalitarian. It is a living, evolving tradition, situated in a historical lineage, which emphasizes the power of collective, rather than individualist, action. His scathing analysis of everything that’s wrong with our society reaches more and more people every day. His brilliant critiques of – among other things – capitalism, imperialism, domestic repression, and government propaganda, have become mini-publishing industries unto themselves.
After Noam Chomsky’s lecture, What is Anarchism? Mr. Chomsky answers 4 extremely revealing questions in the following order: What is the history of trying to set up collective non-hierarchical business models?How did Mr. Chomsky early life experiences impact his current beliefs? How is surveillance technology and militarization of police impacting radical thought today and in the future? Was Slavery and the Civil War a natural extension of the US Revolutionary War and is the politics associated with Slavery still going on today? Many of Mr. Chomsky answers also cover sub-topics and tangents which makes this Q&A fascinating and something very worthwhile watching independently or as a follow up to his main lecture.
