America owns the world

I found a couple of articles from Noam Chomsky today. They’re both along the same lines.

  • Chomsky on World Ownership—This is an interview conducted by Michael Shank, for Foreign Policy in Focus
  • We Own The World—This is an actual article, written by Chomsky, along the same theme as the interview above.
The article is longer than the interview, so if you only have a few minutes to spare, read the interview, but if you have time to think about this a bit more deeply, I recommend the article.

I should point out that the title of this post is intentionally ironic—I don’t really believe that America owns the world. (Regardless of what they believe.)
