One of America’s leading radical intellectuals, Professor Emeritus
Noam Chomsky of MIT–co-author of “Manufacturing Consent”–gives a speech
on how the American people are highly propagandized and manipulated by the government and the press, so that the elites who control the US political and economic system can govern as they wish without democratic interference. He shows that the resulting US foreign policy has been to brutalize much of the world, particularly the Third World.

Despite those findings, President Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order ending a requirement that federally funded projects have strict building standards that consider future flooding from sea level rise due to climate change. Trump’s executive order came as part of his proposed $1 trillion infrastructure plan.
