Description

In this special interview, Noam Chomsky, global thought leader, linguist, political dissident and political theorist, tells us why he thinks Europe has accepted to subordinate itself to the United States, even though it has always had the option to become an independent force in international affairs. We discuss the consequences of this choice like the ongoing Ukraine crisis as well as the lessons learnt from the pandemic, why vaccine patents are a threat to global health, and the role Europe could play in the transition towards a more equitable and ecological future.
