More than 2,000 people attended the lecture captured here, in which Chomsky offered a powerful analysis of the current economic crisis and its structural roots, the continuity in U.S. foreign policy under the Barack Obama administration, and the class interests driving U.S. domestic and foreign policy. He also speaks at length about the tradition of worker self-management as a concrete alternative to the business-as-usual approach of corporations and the government during the current crisis. The DVD also features an introduction by Amy Goodman and an exclusive one-on-one interview with Chomsky.
