Noam Chomsky: "The goal is to create uninformed voters who will make irrational choices."
Smells Like Human Spirit Podcast: Episode 30 - Professor Noam Chomsky on How Oppression Works In Free Societies (Interview)



How Oppression Works In Free Societies:

"For the last, say, century and a half or so, the freest countries were England and the United States. Both countries by about a century ago, dominant sectors, power centers, came to the realization which was pretty explicit in fact, and articulate, that it's becoming difficult to control people by force. They just want too much freedom.

Since it was necessary to keep them under control, it was necessary to turn to other means. And the other means were, the obvious ones - control of attitudes and opinions."

On MLK:

"Martin Luther King, he's now a hero in retrospect, [but] he wasn't at the time, he was vilified, but they typically end with his 'I Have A Dream' speech, The March on Washington and that's the culmination of all our hopes.

[However], King didn't stop there, he immediately went on, he went to the North, began working on urban poverty, he started trying to develop a popular movement of the poor, to press for class issues, class demands. As soon as he moved in that direction, he was cut off."

On Obama:

"Every year [the advertising industry] give an award for the best marketing campaign. That year (2008) they gave it to Obama. Terrific marketing campaign, delud[ing] everyone with crazy talk."

On American Democracy:

"Take a look at the American electoral campaign that just passed, or any other. The goal is to create uninformed voters who will make irrational choices. That is to undermine what you're taught in school [which] is 'democracy'. Lippmann and others knew better – [in their view], democracy they understood is a danger, you have to keep the people out of things, and this is one of the ways to keep them out."
