Chomsky: The United States Today Is Living Under a Kind of Totalitarian Culture That Has Never Existed in My Lifetime and Is Much Worse in Many Ways Than the Soviet Union Before Gorbachev
“The United States today is living under a kind of totalitarian culture that has never existed in my lifetime and is much worse in many ways than the Soviet Union before Gorbachev. You go back to the 1970s, people in Soviet Russia could access BBC, Voice of America, and German television if they wanted to find out the news.
If today, in the United States, you want to find out what Foreign Minister Lavrov of Russia is saying — can’t do it. It’s barred. Americans are not permitted to hear what the Russians are saying… The United States has imposed constraints on freedom on access to information which are astonishing, and which in fact, go beyond what was the case in post-Stalin Soviet Russia.”
