"Noam Chomsky & Abby Martin: The Empire's Election Extravaganza" -- Abby Martin Interviews Noam



https://youtu.be/YUc8ukdVtMs

After a crisp and clear analysis of U.S. imperialism, Noam criticizes Bernie because he is not trying to build a movement.  Then Noam says, however, that Bernie is doing "good and courageous things."  

How can that be?  This is a contradiction that Noam refuses to see in every presidential election.   Noam is into lesser evils.  Too bad, because so many people look up to him. 

In my opinion, it is better to be straight with people and let them know the grounds on which they need to fight.  Not lead them into laying down and accepting the mediocrities (most of which are threatening their very lives) thrust upon them by the ruling elites.
