  2. I’ve just finished reading Noam Chomsky’s book Imperial Ambitions and was in complete agreement with most of what he wrote; however, on pages 178 and 179 I felt that he unfairly and unwisely promoted atheism ahead of theism. I believe that he is correct in his statement that all presidents since Carter have used religion to mobilize their constituencies, but that is just proof that the Bible is accurate. This is the false religion which the Bible reveals, a religion that has attached itself to world governments. I would recommend that all working class individuals read Chomsky, but I would caution them against becoming so enlightened with the ways of the world that they reject their creator.

  3. In my opinion this is Chomsky’s’ greatest lecture on economics to date.

    Absolutely nonpareil analysis of the history of the rise of neoliberalism and the attendant social, governmental, economic and media components thereof …

    He has refined and finished every observation he has put forward to date into his most elegant synopsis to date.
