Noam Chomsky at the 2013 Global Media Forum
Today we live live in times of vital importance. Our generations will decide in what kind of world all the coming generations will live in. Will it be a hostile world, deprived of live by a global doom machine of economic growth or will it be a planet full of live, with a striving humanity on day gaining the wisdom to fly to the stars?
The answer to this question will be the responsibility of our lives. So i ask the global media where do you stand? Will you defend a mad race of economic growth destroying everything lying in it’s path or will you inform the people about our problems and their consequences we will all face if we go on like nothing was amiss? Ladies and gentleman I hope you will make the right decision and decide for a live with a deeper meaning – Thanks!
