Noam Chomsky‘s talk called “Controlling the Public Mind”, taped March 1, 1996, sponsored by the B.C. Federation of Labour and the Vancouver and District Labour Council. Over 1000 people came to hear Dr. Chomsky at the Hotel Vancouver on a cold rainy Sunday night. His flight from Boston was delayed and he didn’t arrive till after 11 pm, for an event scheduled to begin at 7 pm. Nevertheless the room was full when he began speaking. Nearly everyone had waited over 4 hours to hear him.

“The war against working people should be understood to be a real war. It’s not a new war. It’s an old war. Furthermore, it’s a perfectly conscious war everywhere, but specifically in the US … which happens to have a highly class-conscious business class … and they have long seen themselves as fighting a bitter class war, except they don’t want anybody else to know about it.”

This lecture, and following question and answer session, provides an introduction to, and synthesis of, Noam Chomsky’s key thinking on the media, propaganda, and its pivotal role in the relentless class struggle being waged daily. Noam Chomsky is an MIT professor, and the author of dozens of books and CDs on American foreign policy, international affairs, human rights, the media, linguistics and the mind.
