Chomsky: US becoming a "Failed State"?

"The New York Times calls him "arguably the most important intellectual alive." The Boston Globe calls him "America's most useful citizen." He was recently voted the world's No. 1 intellectual in a poll by Prospect and Foreign Policy magazines.

We're talking about Noam Chomsky, professor of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and one of the foremost critics of U.S. foreign policy".

That's Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! speaking

Chomsky has just had his latest book published titled "Failed States: The Abuse of Power and the Assault on Democracy."

Needless to say it covers a range of issues confronting the US and suggested solutions to what Chomsky sees as America becoming a "failed State". Of course, many will see red at what Chomsky is saying.

Be that as it may, the book will cause controversy just because it is written by Chomsky and doubtlessly, at least for some, ignite a debate which needs to be had.
