CORRESPONDENCE WITH PROFESSOR NOAM CHOMSKY

(RB Note: Link to full text of the correspondence below)

Noam Chomsky is an American linguist, computer scientist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, and activist. He is an Institute Professor and Professor Emeritus in the Department of Linguistics & Philosophy at MIT. Chomsky has been described as the "father of modern linguistics" and a major figure of analytic philosophy. His work has influenced fields such as computer science, mathematics, and psychology … He is also the eighth most cited source of all time, and is considered the "most cited living author (from Wikipedia).

In 2009, while searching the internet for any comments on my project Café Peyote, I found the following quote:

"If Noam Chomsky and Kurt Cobain made a record it would sound something like this."

My Mentor had mentioned and quoted Chomsky on many occasions, but I had never gotten around reading any of his books. In June 2011 I remembered the above quote and decided to try to contact Professor Chomsky to invite him to listen to my music and read my blog to get his opinion on both the music and my thoughts on world events. I was able to contact him and we corresponded by email for about a month. In some cases he would write a reply and in others he would interject his thoughts within the text of my emails.

After reading his background and then listening to many of his speeches on YouTube (which I highly encourage you to do) I thought that Chomsky and I would agree on many of my beliefs on world affairs. To my surprise, not only did we disagree in many fundamental issues, but I came out with the impression that while he is a historian that openly speaks about the powerful global elite and the atrocities committed by them and the U.S. government (the elite’s tool of choice, under the flag of democracy and equality) in the form of world domination (direct or covert), he is not necessarily against it and may even directly or indirectly play a part in it.

-------------------------

(RB Note: on September 11, 2011, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 I initiated my second round of correspondence with Professor Chomsky. I have divided the text between my emails and his reply. His answers are in bold and italic).

-------------------------

Hope all is well and that you and your loved ones have not been affected by recent events in the East Coast.

I woke up this morning thinking about today’s 10th anniversary of 9/11, so I turned on the TV. Since the attack, I had not been paying attention to the development of the old World Trade Center site and as I watched I remembered that you had mentioned that the organization that is trying to control everything has been weakened considerably, and then I heard that they named the new building the “One World” Trade Center. It is so sad to see everything that has happened to our world since 2001.

You had mentioned that you had joined in the call for a new investigation into the 9/11 attack. Can you please explain in a nutshell why? What is your belief as to what happened and who were the culprits? What part of the official version do you disagree on? THX

 

Hurricane was a nuisance. Lost power for a day, but that’s familiar in our decaying society. The problem for me was that I was scheduled to fly to Mexico to visit my daughter, and that had to be cancelled. Was taking off for Europe a few days later, so had to miss it. Just back last night.

I don’t see any reason to doubt what the FBI suspected in mid-2002: that the plot was hatched in Afghanistan and then implemented in the UAE and Germany, and that it traces to al-Qaeda. And have never seen any reason to doubt it. I am deluged with furious letters from the “truth movement,” which I politely answer, and years ago I agreed to their request that I join in calling for a new inquiry, but I also pointed out to them two things, which none of them can understand: (1) an official inquiry will discover nothing (they incidentally agree, because everything in the world is run by the CIA, or Mossad, or both), and (2) every serious activist movement sets up its own tribunals, so they can do that if they like. No use.

If you’d like to get a sense of what it’s like, have a look at the activist websites. A piece of mine on 9/11 was just run by Commondreams. Someone sent me a link to the posting and the comments, which were revealing. About 99% were bitter condemnations because I’m a secret agent for the government (or maybe Mossad), as proven by the fact that I ignored the only question that matters in the world: that Bush was the agent of 9/11.

Part of the reason why the left is so ineffectual. Enormous energy is drained off into these endeavors.

-------------------------

I just happen to see a video of you discussing 9/11 and your thoughts on the “Truth Movement” as well.

Professor, of the Organization you mentioned, regardless of how efficient or capable they might be at this time, who would you say are the 10 to 15 most influential or dominating individuals?

 

I wouldn’t try to list individuals. They are not unimportant, but the important questions have to do with institutions, I believe.

-------------------------

I believe identifying individuals and institutions are both important and by knowing the individuals we might be in a better position to identify such institutions.

Humor me, give me the names of the two you consider most influential.

 

Whoever happens to be president of the US is highly influential, because the US is the richest and most powerful state in human history. But that alone should help explain why I don’t think much of the effort to try to rank individuals.

Another reason is that there are many distinct dimensions, unrelated to one another. It’s a hopeless endeavor, in my opinion.

-------------------------

OK, so you said looking at “institutions” (corporations and other profit and non-profit institutions) is more important than looking at individuals.

So tell me then, which are the 10 most powerful and influential “institutions” behind the Organization.

 

I don’t know what “organization” you have in mind. I’ve already mentioned the most powerful institution along many dimensions “the US government” while adding that there are many dimensions. This does not seem to me a useful endeavor.

-------------------------

What organization I have in mind? That is how I started this recent correspondence, noting that I was referring to the organization that you had mentioned in a previous correspondence, the “organization that is trying to control everything” according to you. And I think it is proper to call it the De Facto World Government as named by the Financial Times.

With your type of answers and comments to such important questions it is no wonder why some in the “Truth Movement” think you are a part of the conspiracy. You say people should take action, and in one of our emails you agreed with a person I quoted that it was important not only to find the corporations that are part of the conspiracy, but more important that we identify the individuals behind them, I don’t know, maybe for prosecution or simply to make them visible to the people that don’t know who really controls everything, and yet, you avoid giving specific names of the individuals and institutions when I ask you. Your answer about the president being influential is just a way of you going around the question, as you have already mentioned that the President is just a ceremonial figure, like the Queen.

You stated in an email that we discussed that what the Financial Times calls the De Facto World Government (DWG) operates in secret … that they determine the basic things that happen in life … that it has its own institutions such as the IMF, the World Bank, the Word Trade Organization, as well as the executive branches of the seven rich countries … that the major institutions are under totalitarian control … (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9Nf7FYnrx8) ...

and yet even though you know perfectly well that the Truth Movement firmly believes in such a DWG and that they were behind 9/11, in a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoDqDvbgeXM) you state that “even if this were true,” that 9/11 was an inside job, “who cares … it does not have any significance” and you stretch you logic for that answer by comparing it to the JFK conspiracy and saying, “who cares about JFK (his assassination), who knows and who cares? Plenty of people get killed all the time… what does it matter if one of them happens to be JFK” (and to think that you seemed concerned because I might drive without insurance and injure someone).

Who cares – you say that they determine the basic things that happen in life and that they control the executive branches of the seven rich countries – and who cares? What type of logic are you using? Even a person with a below average IQ can see the importance.

In a video David Ray Griffin (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQPG3QxXy98) tries to answer why you might deny a 9/11 inside job, and he clearly states there how much he admires you, that you are his hero and that he is hopeful that you will wake up on this issue. But it is obvious to me that because of his respect for you he does not want to clearly say that you must know, there is no way around it due to your intelligence and access to persons and data, which I guess would make you an apologist for the DWG; or to put in simpler terms, a liar. That is also the reason why I had stopped my correspondence before and even told you that I did it before I said something to offend you. And then I read your email painting yourself as a victim of hatred of the Truthers.

You being CIA, Mossad, I doubt it, although I guess it could be true. What do I believe? I believe you described yourself in a video very well, when you said, “You are allowed to rent yourself to it. That’s called getting a job.”

I guess in a sense, and as noted by Griffin in so many words, the only question that matters may be if Bush was the agent of 9/11, because establishing that as a fact publicly, and everything behind that revelation, including discovering everyone behind it, maybe, just maybe the DWG could be neutralized or destroyed, like any other criminal conspiracy. Professor, many people look at you for solutions to our world problems, to government abuse. Professor, you can be the Agent for Freedom. Who cares now, you are older, you have lived your life, your wife is waiting for you, you have travelled the world, people bow at you, do this final Good Samaritan gesture for all of mankind. Who care if the DWG thinks you betrayed them because maybe they created and allowed you to live out the prestigious reputation that you enjoy and all benefits that come with it.

On the other hand, maybe you agree with the people behind the DWG, maybe all of us inferior humans are like dogs that will destroy everything if you let us (thus my question if you believed that man had a tendency to be good or bad, because if it is bad, it might justify the need for ruthless control of the masses).

So professor, will you be the agent for truth? It’s so sad professor, what a loss for humanity if you don’t.

Best wishes to you. R
