On June 12, 2009, Noam Chomsky gave a historic address at the Riverside Church in New York City. The talk was sponsored by (and was a benefit for) The Brecht Forum. More than 2,000 people attended this historic lecture, captured here, in which Chomsky offers a powerful analysis of the current economic crisis and its structural roots; the continuity in U.S. foreign policy under the Barack Obama administration; and the class interests driving U.S. domestic and foreign policy. He discusses at length the traditions of worker self-management as a concrete alternative to the business as usual approach of corporations and the government during the current crisis.
