Instead of a traditional review here are ten 10 thoughts that occurred to me as I read Towards a New Cold War by Noam Chomsky1 It s probably a good idea to be skeptical of anyone who seeks power even or especially people we like or agree with2 If we don t believe in freedom of speech for people we despise John Pilger uotes Chomsky in the introduction we don t believe in it at all Are there exceptions like yelling coronavirus in a crowded theater I guess that s debatable But Chomsky is intimately familiar with the ways people try to make exceptions in order to silence dissent Freedom of speech is one thing but to oppose the war in Vietnam Well that makes you a Communist that s a different story Or freedom of speech is one thing but to talk about the human rights of Palestinians not something that most Americans take kindly to That makes you anti Semitic that s a different story Or something is problematic a useful term for when you don t want to think further about an issue Chomsky has been through all that and I m sureSo to play off of thought 1 it s probably a good idea to be skeptical of any formulation to the effect of I believe in freedom of speech but even or especially when the censorship is directed at people we dislike or disagree with3 The belief that there were only two mutually exclusive ideas in the world was useful to both the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War Isn t this belief somewhat mirrored in the US today Haven t we gotten habituated to thinking that there are only two mutually exclusive ideas in the country and that anyone with the opposing idea is a bad person almost less than human or at least suffering from some pathology4 The Cold War looks very different when you step away from the perspective of eastern Europe Why is it for example that so many countries in Central and South America Africa and Southeast Asia welcomed into the Free World by the United States became in the process of achieving that freedom military dictatorshipsChomsky writes that US foreign policy not surprisingly has a lot to do with the material interests of a relatively small ruling class than it does with any of the moral shibboleths generally invoked by politicians and the media In other words according to Chomsky despite appearances US support for governments throughout the Third World wasn t necessarily meant to reward murder torture and repression it s just that those practices were mostly irrelevant to US intereststhe correlation between abuse of human rights and US support derives from deeper factors Each correlate independently with a third and critical factor namely improvement of the investment climate as measured by privileges granted foreign capital The climate for business operations improves as unions and other popular organizations are destroyed dissidents are tortured or eliminated real wages are depressed and the society as a whole is placed in the hands of a collection of thugs who are willing to sell out to the foreigner for a share of the lootas the climate for business operations improves the society is welcomed into the Free World and offered the specific aid that will further these favorable developments If the conseuences are for example that crops are produced for export by wealthy landowners or transnational agribusiness while the population starves that is simply the price that must be paid for the survival of free institutions5 It s hard to escape the conclusion that the CIA was and probably still is one of the most dangerous terrorist organizations in world history if not the most dangerous but something about that still sounds vaguely off maybe because as a kid I was to some extent indoctrinated and part of the indoctrination involves instilling the belief that indoctrination is only something other countries do I m reminded of the chapter in Victor Klemperer s The Language of the Third Reich where he observed that German kids who had been born during the Nazi era even after the war seemed unable to conceptualize the meaning of the word heroisch in any context other than on a field of battle Klemperer wrote that cliches take hold of us but so do associations This is not something that Chomsky writes about in this collection explicitly but rather something that his writing and the implicit worldview behind it got me thinking about For example I just did a little experiment I thought of the word propaganda and the first adjective that came to mind apologies to any Russians out there but I was free associating was Russian Perhaps Chinese would be the second German propaganda sounds like it could be right but only within the context of World War II Canadian propaganda on the other hand sounds totally ludicrous I almost expected spellcheck to put a long red line under both words but something within me also has a difficult time just looking at the phrases American propaganda and Israeli propaganda never mind American terrorism and Israeli terrorism all of which obviously denote things that exist I guess the point is that in America by definition terrorism has come to mean what enemy countries do not what we or our allies with our financial and military support ever do or even could do Associations take hold of us6a Speaking of the concept of heroism a news story emerged as I was reading this collection about whether President Trump had privately referred to the Troops ie the US military of World War I not as heroisch which would be standard but as losers which in American culture would be like dropping your pants and taking a big shit right there on the flag I noticed in my little corner of social media that a lot of liberals seemed to be cheering this story on both the story and its presumed effect on Trump voters I posted an article by Glenn Greenwald in which Glenn pointed out that the Atlantic story relied only on anonymous sources and that Jeffrey Goldberg the author of the piece is basically a flak for the intelligence community with a history of peddling nonsense like the supposed connection between Ira and al aeda in 2002 but no one in my corner of social media seemed very interested If it s bad for Trump and who knows if it even is as a matter of fact I d be surprised if anyone even remembers this story by the time I post this review it must be good6b Greenwald acknowledged that yes it certainly seems plausible that Trump would have said something like this especially in light of his remarks about John McCain years ago but journalism is not supposed to be grounded in whether something is believable or seems like it could be true Its core purpose the only thing that really makes it matter or have worth is reporting what is true or at least what evidence reveals And that function is completely subverted when news outlets claim that they confirmed a previous report when they did nothing than just talked to the same people who anonymously whispered the same things to them as were whispered to the original outlet6c Further what exactly is the point of a story about how politician X may or may not have said some offensive thing a couple of years ago You might not like itbut it really doesn t impact your life or mine in the slightest does it I can t help thinking that the we pay attention to stories like this the less we pay attention to stories about say what Trump s new ambassador to Afghanistan might be planning or why we still don t have universal healthcare in this country even in the midst of a global pandemic or how the Pentagon was given a billion dollars in March to build up the country s supplies of medical euipment but instead spent most of the money on what else military supplies Maybe that s not a coincidence And I wonder what really bothers the Troops the possibility that a politician may or may not have said something mean about them in private or the fact that the politicians of both major parties continue to send them into overseas conflicts for no good reason 6d I wonder if if it s bad for Trump it must be good is a mindset that people will be able to just turn off after the election if in fact Biden wins a big if When Biden starts a new conflict in the Middle East or Harris decides it might be a good idea to prosecute the parents of truant kids and that we don t have enough private prisons or when neither of them do enough to take on the fossil fuel industry is the answer to every criticism of their administration going to be would you rather have Trump back in office It had better not be7 Implicit in Chomsky s worldview I think is the deceptively profound idea that there is nothing inherently exceptional or deserving about the country you grew up in than any other country and that our lives are not any valuable than the lives of people anywhere else Chomsky constantly encourages you to imagine the shoe on the other foot Most people would probably agree with this in principle at least I hope they would but in terms of the ways we absorb news and the mental habits formed thereby Chomsky s distinction between worthy and unworthy victims still no doubt applies Every moment of the political spectacle here in the States is analyzed discussed and obsessed over but we don t generally hear a lot about what s happening in YemenFor decades we ve been habituated to dehumanize and disregard the lives of people in foreign countries who don t happen to be our allies I have been too Drone strikes have increased under Trump but he didn t invent them and those unworthy deaths in the paper over the course of decades seem to partially constitute the natural order of things Maybe the next logical step is that the citizens of the empire begin to dehumanize each other8 The way we choose collectively to interpret some significant historical event is itself often very significant and in the days and months and years after such an event we re in the continual process of interpretation whether we re conscious of interpreting or not And naturally there s competition to influence this collective interpretation although in the era of YouTube algorithms operating on dopamine and advertising money I wonder if even the notion that there are people out there consciously trying to manipulate us in one way or the other is itself becoming uaint and antiuated Chomsky points out that the ideological range of interpretations offered by the media is often artificially narrow The typical commentator Chomsky writes may concede the stupidity of American policy and even its savagery but not the illegitimacy inherent in the entire enterprise the fact that this Vietnam was a war of aggression waged by the United States This issue must be excluded from debate over the lessons of the debacle because it goes directly to the crucial matter of the resort to force and violence to guarantee a certain vision of global order9 Domestic scandals and Washington infighting are always given attention than an administration s real crimes maybe because the real crimes are the general rule We all remember Nixon as a criminal but he was a criminal for reasons far important than Watergatethe charges against Nixon were for behavior not too far out of the ordinary though he erred in choosing his victims among the powerful a significant deviation from established practice He was never charged with the serious crimes of his administration such as the secret bombing of Cambodia The issue was raised but it was the secrecy of the bombing not the bombing itself that was held to be the crime 10 Recently I read an old interview with Clint Eastwood in which he talks about how he s never been able to play characters who are losers The reason is that it has always seemed to Clint that the losers of the world enjoy losing for some strange reason he s never been able to understand Reading Chomsky is a reminder to not be satisfied with that story
