Description by OLDIES.com:
Noam Chomsky is a renowned scholar, the founder of the modern science of linguistics, a philosopher, a political and social analyst, a media critic, an author of more than 70 books, a winner of numerous prizes and awards and ranks with Marx, Shakespeare and the bible as one of the 10 most-quoted sources in the humanities.
In this remarkable DVD, Noam Chomsky offers a riveting but devastating critique of America's current War on Terror - arguing, in fact, that it is a logical impossibility for such a war to be taking place. Professor Chomsky presents his reasoning with astonishing and refreshing clarity, drawing from a wealth of historical knowledge and analysis. "Only those who are entirely ignorant of modern history will be surprised by the course of events, or by the justifications that are provided..." Anyone who is serious about trying to understand world events since September 11th cannot afford to miss this.
Noam Chomsky--scholar, founder of the modern science of linguistics, philosopher, political and social analyst, author, and media critic--is shown in two fascinating, post 9/11 lectures, in which he presents the idea that the idea of a war on terror is a logical impossibility. The first lecture was given at Harvard University JFK School of Government. The second was held at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where Chomsky has been a professor for over forty years. DISTORTED MORALITY is a crucial document for anyone struggling for a stronger grasp of the post 9/11 world.
