Noam Chomsky has been writing about the lack of democracy under neoliberal hegemony for decades, which is why I was so surprised that he signed the recent Harper’s Letter. This video explores the nature of Neoliberal Hegemonic Soft Power, the Manufacturing of Consent, Neoliberal Institutions, and the ways in which Chomsky undermines his own life’s body of work by signing “The Letter,” and asks the question: what does “Cancel Culture” REALLY mean to those in power?
