کتاب حاکمان جهان کیستند

اثر نوام چامسکی از انتشارات دیبایه - مترجم: رضا قشلاقی-ادبیات آمریکا

In an incisive, thorough analysis of the current international situation, Noam Chomsky examines the way that the United States, despite the rise of Europe and Asia, still largely sets the terms of global discourse. Drawing on a wide range of examples, from the sordid history of U.S. involvement with Cuba to the sanctions on Iran, he details how Americas rhetoric of freedom and human rights so often diverges from its actions. He delves deep into the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Israel-Palestine, providing unexpected and nuanced insights into the workings of imperial power on our increasingly chaotic planet. And, in a new afterword, he addresses the election of Donald Trump and what it shows about American society.

I agree with comments below about the need for better editing. Some sentences/ideas were almost literally repeated 3 or four times, such as the question about how the US would feel about Latin America joining the Warsaw Pact in relation to the invitation to Ukraine to join NATO, or how the Republican party can now only try to appeal to far right evangelical Christians and racists, having ostracised themselves from their regular following. This constant repetition and lack of logical connections from chapter to chapter made me feel like I had missed something in the opening chapter or blurb, but I dont think this book is intended as a collection of separate essays.

Having said that, I thought it was worth my time, especially as I had not read any of his full length books up to now. His deliberate use of the the word @terror@ when describing the actions of the US and Israel is effective and did help me @unlearn@ the propaganda messages I have been subject to all my life- like the idea that the USAs meddling with other nations is all done in order to spread democracy. Some of the revelations are really shocking (like why Laos was so heavily bombed by American pilots) . I really appreciated the authors meticulous footnoting of his claims.

Noam Chomsky was a name I kept running across in my reading over the years, and I had long intended to take the plunge and read one of his books. A giant in the field of linguistics, Chomsky has had a storied and prolific career as an MIT professor, philosopher, activist, writer and more.

“Who Rules The World”, was, for me, a pointed and sobering introduction to his well-known criticisms of American foreign policy. I knew going in that my political views are markedly different than his, but much credit to Chomsky for a logical, well-documented, and thorough narrative of his thesis: that the U.S. has, for decades, let a hunger for power, empire building, and ties with corporate interests take precedence over human rights, democracy and environmental and nuclear threats.

Certainly the U. S. doesn’t have a flawless record; no nation does. And even though it has, in my view, the finest system of government ever conceived, mistakes will be made that need correcting --- sometime, as in our past, at the deep philosophical and spiritual level. Wherever you stand on the political spectrum, Chomsky will make you think, and he will test your arguments – and that’s a good thing.

Consider everything you think you know about how things run in the world, how things operate inside global politics, how things play out in different social milieus, whos in charge of things, and why and how things manifest as they do, and then throw it all away, chuck it, because Noams going to walk you out to that bench in a far field under a tree (sit carefully though, it may be studded with nails) and hes going to tell you how it is. Hes going to rip the smiley masks off of favorite people icons, and show you the faces of the joker and the evil clowns hiding underneath. Hes going to beat the crap out of a whole herd of sacred, patriotic cows. Its going to be hard, and its going to take you some time to recover your equilibrium. But Noams gonna show you that you dont know shit, and although he shows that hes cognizant how some of this information may resound in the respective head spaces of individual readers, he comes nowhere near to apologizing. Read it; reality beckons.

What happens when you can no longer willfully ignore history, and the billions of people affected by disastrous US choices and aggression?

A damning read, and a must for anyone with a conscience.
