VIDEO: The Colossal Responsibility of Today’s Generation: Talking with Noam Chomsky
At Garn Press we are 100% committed to supporting young people by publishing writers of conscience who take on the most prescient issues of our time. In the past ten years the ideas of “existential risks” and the human “transgression of planetary boundaries” have become more familiar and we now have the idea of “endling” for next generation of humans on the planet. Noam Chomsky is convinced (and he is convincing) that the situation is dire. But he is also sure that there is much we can do to change the future now. The resistance and protest movements that are sweeping Democrats and also taking place around the world are a hopeful sign that, while the governing elites are consumed by self-interest, the people do have the power to change the future now.
Listen to Chomsky, acknowledge the great risks, and then join one of the many protest movements and resist. United we stand. Divided we fall.
Here’s the newsPeeks interview with Noam Chomsky, one of the most widely-read political thinkers of the last century. Here he covers the backlash against the activism in the late 1960s and how it informs the world today, and the urgency with which young people need to act to save the planet.
