Chomsky just doing his thing, breaking down the current political theater while casually commenting on the very real threat of nuclear war.
I like the bit at the end where he talks about Russian interference in the election. Not only is it hypocritical to be outraged by a foreign government influencing the outcome of our election, it has far less impact than the on-the-books legal meddling of corporate interests in American politics, yet corporate power and lobbying are just seen as politics-as-usual. I don't think Russian interference is a non-issue, but it's not the greatest threat to our democracy.
This quote is great: "It’s easy to condemn those we place on the other side of some divide, but more important, commonly, to explore what we take to be nearby."
