Noam Chomsky: Confluence of Challenges: The Fate of the Human ExperimentLIVE
The Institute for Critical Social Inquiry (ICSI) presents the 2021 Distinguished Public Lecture Series.
We live at a moment of extraordinary challenges, unique in human history: environmental catastrophe, nuclear war, new pandemics, all too many others. Crucially, for each imminent crisis we know of feasible solutions, which can lead to a better world. What we do not know is whether humans, who have the fate of the world in their hands, have the moral and intellectual capacity to rise to the challenge and do what must be done. And soon. There can be no delay. If they fail, the human experiment will be heading inexorably towards an inglorious end, bringing down much else with it. Nancy Fraser will serve as respondent.
