The Mainstream and the Margins: Noam Chomsky vs. Michael Parenti

Posted: October 25, 2016 in Uncategorized

An excellent Analysis. My MSc schedule means I can’t concentrate entirely on all the sub-blogs attached atm, but I am well impressed at the amount of info here.


 

I soon plan to read Michael Parenti’s ‘The Culture Struggle’ – or anything by Parenti!

“In conclusion, racism is usually seen as an aberrant, irrational output of a basically rational social system.

Actually, it more often is the other way around: racism is the rational outcome of an irrationally skewed and unjust system of privilege and exploitation.

Much of politics is the rational manipulation of irrational symbols.

Racist sentiments are consciously orchestrated by ruling elites whenever they can get away with it.”

Some good stuff on YouTube too – like this:
