Chomsky lecture on the US and UNESCO

December 9, 2011

This is a lecture that Chomsky delivered last month at Kutztown University as part of UNESCO’s World Philosophy Day.

UNESCO, according to Chomsky, is one of the best programs of the United Nations. UNESCO promotes peace, multi-culturalism, free speech and independent media. Not surprising the US government has always been critical of UNESCO. Most recently the US discontinued its funding of UNESCO because the UN organization supported and advocated for Palestinian statehood.

The lecture by Chomsky, including Q&A lasts about 1 hour and 40 minutes. But is well worth listening to.
