8:32 pm
to demonstrate and police officers from what i read you recently sent a message to support the activists of this group called occupy wall street you've called them courageous and honorable you can talk to me about your take on occupy wall street well as in the wall street is just a short hand through the financial institutions the banks are bigger and richer than before corporate profits are retreating record levels and for much of unemployment about the level of the great depression real unemployment these people are saying no let's blame the institutions behind them so fiscal policies like taxation rules of corporate governance deregulation and so on it does set in motion a vicious cycle which is getting worse and worse in new york so walk down the streets you can see it very serious poverty on the other hand phenomenal wealth
8:33 pm
right side by side the much like a third world country what you see if you go to so if there are enough with it meanwhile infrastructure is collapsing and schools are collapsing and all of that increases the. keeps the cycle going and then it's like rising well. it's about time for some protest what may be in there in the coming year for the two thousand and twelve election is that many including yourself have speculated and assume that campaign spending for the u.s. election in two thousand and twelve will exceed one billion dollar each friendly to tidy that isn't massive now could be much nicer than where does that come from well you know basically a lot of it comes from financial institutions like you look at the two thousand and eight election and what's one obama what gave him the election was primarily financial institution contributions they preferred him to make and they
8:34 pm
expected to be paid back when they were. on the next will be even worse and certainly that's why a part of it in parliament are systems including our own up to old maybe twenty years ago. positions of influence in a functioning part of a parliamentary system what's the chair of a committee. comes from principle at least from experience seniority. legislative contributions and so on that's gone now they're bought if you if you want to become chair of a committee. in the house or the senate you have to pay off the party have to pay for it and where do you get the money to pay for it sam pocket you don't so. provides even more influence to the your already overwhelming fluence of concentrated capital so it's harder and harder to distinguish between the elected
8:35 pm
officials and. economic concentration it never was easy to distinguish i should say this is not something novel but now it's reaching the extreme level but what's left of america's democratic system if this is the process that has been cemented in plates and what is really left if from every angle there's these very nicely and we just take a look at public opinion they'll tell you. about two thirds of the public thinks the entire congress would be thrown out. doesn't mean it's going to happen no but it means that the system isn't working and the public knows it. the popularity of favor ability rating for congress and single digit president not much higher in the same month across all other institutions it's a very widespread sense that everything is going wrong that tells you the democratic system is just not functioning now in fact i don't want to suggest that
8:36 pm
this is totally new so you go back a century and you can still predict throughout all this period pretty well the outcome of elections by campaign funding but there are degrees and now it's gotten extreme. the levels to which the u.s. has departed from other capital of societies a pretty remarkable you released a book recently. called nine eleven was there an alternative focusing on the u.s. assassination of osama bin laden and that continuity you say between george w. bush and barack obama. killing us on that laudanum interesting case it was done in such a way as to infuriate the pakistanis which is extremely dangerous that's the most dangerous country in the world and go into it but you have a professional army committed to the sovereignty of pakistan the pakistanis were
8:37 pm
already. overwhelmingly and he american this shoots through the stratosphere the army is bitterly angry not only at the invasion of the country and the murder of someone on their soil but also that they're being pressured forced to take part in an american war in afghanistan some of the conservative military out a list wrote about the bin laden assassination and i quoted some of them pointed out quite accurately that there's a shift between bush's policies and obama's and this bush bush policy was to kidnap people. whatever you thought about them. take them to one ton of our bug rum or some other torture chamber and try to extract some information out of them we know what it was like to describe it obama's policy was
8:38 pm
just to kill. killing them all over the world targeted assassination camp and you know to kidnap them and torture him just kill him. the bin laden assassination was a case in point it's hard to remember but there used to be a system of justice in the west which said that a person is a suspect until he's proven guilty of until then he's a suspect he's innocent until proven guilty well that's one night you just kill him if you think they're guilty so he was apprehended. no resistance he was alone with his wife but a defense nothing. highly trained commandos could certainly have apprehended him and they didn't they were under orders to murder him and then toss his body into the ocean acts that are almost designed such a way as to increase her and. hatred throughout the muslim world and when anybody has got their eyes open you talk about the obama
8:39 pm
administration and how the u.s. actually is right now could be infuriating the muslim world the arab world the obama administration has supported the tunisians has supported the egyptians has supported the libyans and the so-called arab spring the palestinians have officially submitted an application for u.n. membership and statehood the u.s. says that they will cast if you go against it if they do because they believe that the record go shisha should take place between house and israel before there's an independent palestine or first of all i have to make a qualification of the united states and its western allies did not support the egyptian museum revolutions they opposed them they said they backed the internet as it was mostly france it's their call and fix going to need to reach the united states and britain their support of the dictators until the last minute and
8:40 pm
when. the army turned against them and it was no longer possible to support them then they said ok we want democracy is wonderful and then they moved to try to ensure that the regimes would stay pretty much as they were and so it's a very old pattern but putting that aside it's true that the united states announced that it would cast of the progress thirty five years of the united states and israel has been rejecting a political settlement that is supported by virtually the entire world the arab league the organization of islamic states which includes iran and hamas supports it almost no relevant party disagrees with it except that the united states and israel let it happen how does the fact that egypt right now and turkey have really sever their relationship it's really see that's an effect of the arab spring what's happening there are changes in the world what's happening israel's getting harm or
8:41 pm
isolated meaning the u.s. is getting for more isolated for example a couple months ago there was a meeting of the the oligarchy people pretty much on the economy they warned the government that they better accept something like this resolution because that is it otherwise israel will be as they put it south african iced even more isolated you know boycotts refusal of chips and so on and our economy will collapse now it's interesting that israel is reacting pretty much the way so. if you look back at the history by about one hundred sixty we have the records south african foreign minister called in the american ambassador described this to and said we don't really care as long as you back us because you're the one who matters and that's how it works right through the one thousand nine hundred eighty s. u.n. border u.n. embargo corporations were pulling out. sanctions were all over. they were doing
8:42 pm
fine. the reagan administration was backing them. as long as the u.s. was supporting them nothing happened then the u.s. withdrew support almost instantly apartheid collapsed saying it's in israel's best interest and the us still allow this palestinian un membership stay with us for thirty years the same scenario which a family where it's now that it's been for almost forty years there's a choice between security and expansion very clear choice israel is like other states is preferred for since the early seventy's it's had a choice between security and expansion can have peace but not with expansion into the territories which incidentally is recognized to be criminal but every one including israel. they can get away with it as long as the most powerful state in
8:43 pm
the world backs them and as long as europe goes along and europe is remarkably talented lead them out like this but they don't like to step on the opponent also the masters so they go along so you know it's the quartet has backed the united states they picked tony blair you know i don't have to comment on him but then i might as well stick george bush to it to bring the message you do what the united states tells you to stop this nonsense about statehood and go back to negotiations with that's where we now stand and it's up to the people danced industrial countries to compel the governments to go along with the world the rest chomsky thank you very much for your time. discovering.
