n Feb. 26th, four bumbling fools made their way up to Noam Chomsky’s office. We were going to record an interview with a man who had been an entrance point to radical politics for us. I can still remember the first day I got Chomsky on Anarchism in the mail, the criticisms it made of our society, and it’s call for more and more freedom.

On that day, we wanted to ask about manufacturing consent, about the hypocrisy of US foreign policy, about how the media frames the debate to effectively exclude the idea that what is being done in every American citizens’ name is morally reprehensible and quite often a grave crime.

This interview originally aired on Houston’s Pacifica Radio Station, 90.1 KPFT FM!
