    Chomsky's point 36:30 about everything abbreviated down and twitterised to short phrases and IMs, smartphones. Can anyone emember their most important phone numbers?No we need our phones. And then articles online throughout the whole damn thing is distractive links interspersed which should be a raised letter pointing to a footnote, with the references at the end. Rare to find one article without links. BUT reading books which few do it seems, forces questions that provided links supply the answers for. What can happen is the thoughtful moments when reading, to stop and ponder, to let sink in just what was written, but the links can send you down a rabbit hole of getting lost on websites bouncing issue to issue, so conceptions, ideals and issues never get fully assimilated and connections and memories made physically to connect the dots, or the synapses growing cells for memories,etc. While I love trees, and ebooks save them, when can anyone 100 years from now read a letter sent to someone today, if email gets purged(likely)when before letters were on paper and saved(providing historcal items as well, the ink, kind of paper, etc the dated materials)?

    We need a new Declaration of Independence from…?Imperialist rule has taken the place of King George of the 1700s.American citizens have to climb down from their hubris and false idea that somehow they are better than any group on earth. CONservatives seem to think the US Constitution was written FOR them, tho' their group at the time were the Tories who wanted to stay as a colony, it was radicals like Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine of the Enlightenment thinking of the day(many of whom were racist mofos, and when speaking of man's rights and freedoms, it was speaking of the wealthy landowners.

    Devices for internet communication is so quick and varied, the methods at least, but speed is the only advantage, content, most of it, is people with no 'informed' opinions, but of the lowest common denominator yelling loudly about their right to speak, but who are usually the ones with very little or nothing of value to say.

    No disrespect to the professor, but his voice and tone allows for his lectures to be the perfect way to fall asleep on a sleepless night.

    i like the guy, great information.. i just cant stand the way he talks sometimes. Speak into the microphone, talk louder. After all the talks he's done you would think he would know. Full volume and still have problems hearing him. Good to put someone to sleep.

    these annoying flagrant advertisements forced in the middle of this important talk

    most people in my country the uk, are, in spite of dire warnings from science, still happily driving as many miles and taking as many easyjet holidays as their unsustainable oil based cancer job can buy. and they would rather concern themselves with some football team, soap opera or getting their brat in the best school, than bother to find out what the latest global warming news is. getting as much from the megacancer feeding trough as they can. the sooner industrial civilization collapses and these privaliged wankers starve to death horribly, the better.

    The future of humanity is that it is not as bright as former generations. The youth of today is indoctrinated in Leftist ideals of tolerance, inclusion, and democracy. However the truth is that the youth of today have embraced corporatism and neoliberalism. Young people the world over love Apple, Amazon, Facebook and other neoliberal corporations. Today Apple is a fashion brand and young people don't care that they manufacture their products with slave labor and refuse to pay their taxes. They only care that their President says that it's better to be gay than straight, and they have so many cool aps and stuff. Rape culture and mysogany is everywhere in youth culture today. Computer gamers and coders love to humiliate women every chance they get, hip hop music celebrates busting bitches, and treats girls like mere objects and toys. Yet as sexual assault among the young is at an all time high these same young people are proud that women can now be in combat, and that they can fly helicopters and that shows their commitment to non sexism. It's all bullshit. My education was in government work along the lines of psychological warfare, and I actually studied this at MIT at one time. From the perspective of an analyst of social trends deduced from cultural content and media it's clear that western society, and all societies, are in a state of severe crisis. But America is the worst. To me there are many reasons for this, some of which are the breakdown of social cohension in the family and religious institutions. Particuarly among negros, where now seventy four percent of children are born without fathers. But the biggest contributor is economic, as poverty has increased and wage earners have given up on any kind of career success and are constantly humiliated by their employers and other institutions, such as even advertising as they see themselves as not worthy of the icons of a purely materialistic society with no spiritual component or moral element to sustain their value. It's only money now and they have none.

    Shame on you, guys, FOR NOT ALLOWING Q's from audience, instead of highly scripted and sterile Q's from the stage. A typical dictatorial approach!!
