Propaganda and Control of the Public Mind by Noam Chomsky

This brief (under 2 hours) audio presentation gives an overview of some of Chomsky’s thoughts on various issues, primarily about state propaganda and how it influences thoughts and actions. It was as if Chomsky was responding to questions but we don’t know what most of the questions were. This would not be a good first Chomsky experience but might serve as a brief reminder for those already familiar. Both interesting and saddening was the fact that despite this being from the late 1990s, his commentary is applicable to current events (and one barely notices it's age).

Far better was What We Say Goes (reviewed above).
