Konsequenzen des Kapitalismus: Der lange Weg von der Unzufriedenheit zum Widerstand Audiobook

Konsequenzen des Kapitalismus: Der lange Weg von der Unzufriedenheit zum Widerstand

Author: Marv Waterstone, Noam Chomsky Narrator: Sebastian Pappenberger Release Date: June 2022

Eine essentielle Fibel über Kapitalismus, Politik und die Funktionsweise der Welt, basierend auf der sehr beliebten Vorlesungsreihe 'Was ist Politik?' Gibt es eine Alternative zum Kapitalismus? In diesem bahnbrechenden Text zeichnen Chomsky und Waterstone eine kritische Landkarte für eine gerechtere und nachhaltigere Gesellschaft. 'Covid-19 hat eklatante Versäumnisse und monströse Brutalitäten im gegenwärtigen kapitalistischen System aufgedeckt. Es stellt sowohl eine Krise als auch eine Chance dar. Alles hängt von den Handlungen ab, die die Menschen in ihre eigenen Hände nehmen.' Wie prägt die Politik unsere Welt, unser Leben und unsere Wahrnehmungen? Wie viel vom 'gesunden Menschenverstand' wird tatsächlich von den Bedürfnissen und Interessen der herrschenden Klassen bestimmt? Und wie können wir die kapitalistischen Strukturen herausfordern, die heute alles Leben auf dem Planeten bedrohen?

Chronicles of Dissent Audiobook

Chronicles of Dissent

Author: Noam Chomsky Narrator: Ako Mitchell Release Date: March 2022

Brought to you by Penguin. An accessible, powerful overview of Noam Chomsky's political thought In sixteen extended talks with Alternative Radio's David Barsamian, Noam Chomsky explains why the 'war on drugs' is really a war on poor people; how attacks on political correctness are attacks on independent thought; how historical revisionism has recast the United States as the victim in the Vietnam War. Widely recognized as one of the most original and important thinkers of our age, Chomsky's trenchant analysis of current events is a breath of fresh air in a world more and more polluted by mainstream media. © Noam Chomsky 2022 (P) Penguin Audio 2022

The Precipice: Neoliberalism, the Pandemic and the Urgent Need for Radical Change Audiobook

The Precipice: Neoliberalism, the Pandemic and the Urgent Need for Radical Change

Author: C. J. Polychroniou, Noam Chomsky Narrator: Ako Mitchell Release Date: June 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. In this powerful collection of interviews, Noam Chomsky exposes the problems of our world today, as we stand in this period of monumental change, preparing for a more hopeful tomorrow. 'For the left, elections are a brief interlude in a life of real politics, a moment to ask whether it's worth taking time off to vote . . . Then back to work. The work will be to move forward to construct the better world that is within reach.' He sheds light into the phenomenon of right-wing populism, and exposes the catastrophic nature and impact of authoritarian policies on people, the environment and the planet as a whole. He captures the dynamics of the brutal class warfare launched by the masters of capital to maintain and even enhance the features of a dog-eat-dog society. And he celebrates the recent unprecedented mobilizations of millions of people internationally against neoliberal capitalism, racism and police violence. We stand at a precipice and we must fight to pull the world back from it. © Noam Chomsky, C.J. Polychroniou 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

Requiem por el sueno americano (Requiem for the American Dream): The 10 Principles of Concentration  Audiobook

Requiem por el sueno americano (Requiem for the American Dream): The 10 Principles of Concentration

Author: Noam Chomsky Narrator: German Jaramillo Release Date: April 2021

Chomsky disecciona los diez principios fundamentales de la concentración de la riqueza y el poder en Estados Unidos, que a efectos prácticos han secuestrado la democracia en favor de los intereses de una élite políticofinanciera, sumiendo a un gran porcentaje de la población en la miseria y desesperanza más absolutas. Con su habitual agudeza, Chomsky muestra cómo los principales excesos y rasgos espeluznantes de la realidad estadounidense forman parte de una estrategia integral por parte de la casta dominante para aferrarse al poder y a los privilegios que éste conlleva.

Wer beherrscht die Welt? Audiobook

Wer beherrscht die Welt?

Author: Noam Chomsky Narrator: Olaf Renoldi Release Date: March 2021

Der New York Times- und SPIEGEL-Bestseller. Von einem der streitbarsten Denker der Gegenwart - Noam Chomsky. Nach wie vor betrachten sich die USA grundsätzlich als die Guten - selbst dann, wenn sie das Gleiche tun wie jene, denen sie Böses unterstellen: Zivilflugzeuge abschießen, willkürlich Leute inhaftieren und mit Drohnen umbringen oder in fremde Länder einmarschieren. Das Primat der militärischen Intervention und der unerbittliche Drang, alleinige Weltmacht zu bleiben, bilden die Konstanten der amerikanischen Politik - auch wenn dadurch Staaten ins Chaos und Menschen ins Verderben getrieben werden. Im Land dagegen haben die Reichen und Mächtigen fast freie Hand, jenseits demokratischer Kontrollen und unbeachtet von einer zunehmend gleichgültigen Bevölkerung. In seiner so brillanten wie präzisen Analyse zeigt Noam Chomsky die fatalen Folgen der imperialen Politik der USA für das ohnehin immer chaotischere Zusammenleben auf unserem Planeten. In diesem Hörbuch erfahren Sie: wer zu den prominenteren und einflussreicheren Akteuren der Weltpolitik gehört, wohin uns die Machtpolitik der USA führt, wie die Protagonisten dabei verfahren, welche Folgen das für den Rest der Welt hat, welche Möglichkeiten den 'Basisbevölkerungen' zur Verfügung stehen, um die Macht der Wirtschaft und der nationalistischen Doktrin zu überwinden. 'Die Frage, wer die Welt regiert, kann nicht eindeutig beantwortet werden. Aber die einflussreichsten Akteure sind klar auszumachen.' Noam Chomsky, geboren 1928, ist Professor emeritus am M.I.T. für Sprachwissenschaft und Philosophie. Er hat die moderne Linguistik revolutioniert und zahlreiche Bestseller über Politik verfasst. Chomsky ist einer der weltweit bekanntesten linken Intellektuellen und seit jeher ein prominenter Kritiker der amerikanischen Politik wie auch des globalen Kapitalismus. Die Originalausgabe erschien 2016 unter dem Titel Who rules the World? bei Metropolitan Books, Henry Holt and Company, LLC, New York.

Consequences of Capitalism: Manufacturing Discontent and Resistance Audiobook

Consequences of Capitalism: Manufacturing Discontent and Resistance

Author: Marv Waterstone, Noam Chomsky Narrator: Donald Corren Release Date: January 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. An essential primer on capitalism, politics and how the world works, based on the hugely popular undergraduate lecture series 'What is Politics?' Is there an alternative to capitalism? In this landmark text Chomsky and Waterstone chart a critical map for a more just and sustainable society. 'Covid-19 has revealed glaring failures and monstrous brutalities in the current capitalist system. It represents both a crisis and an opportunity. Everything depends on the actions that people take into their own hands.' How does politics shape our world, our lives and our perceptions? How much of 'common sense' is actually driven by the ruling classes' needs and interests? And how are we to challenge the capitalist structures that now threaten all life on the planet? Consequences of Capitalism exposes the deep, often unseen connections between neoliberal 'common sense' and structural power. In making these linkages, we see how the current hegemony keeps social justice movements divided and marginalized. And, most importantly, we see how we can fight to overcome these divisions. © Noam Chomsky, Marv Watersone 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

The Climate Crisis and the Global Green New Deal: The Political Economy of Saving the Planet Audiobook

The Climate Crisis and the Global Green New Deal: The Political Economy of Saving the Planet

Author: Noam Chomsky, Robert Pollin Narrator: James Patrick Cronin Release Date: September 2020

An engaging conversation with our most respected public intellectual around how a global Green New Deal has the potential to save humanity and the planet The environmental crisis under way is unique in human history. It is a true existential crisis. Those alive today will decide the fate of humanity. Meanwhile, the leaders of the most powerful state in human history are dedicating themselves with passion to destroying the prospects for organized human life. At the same time, there is a solution at hand, which is the Green New Deal. Putting meat on the bones of the Green New Deal starts with a single simple idea: we have to absolutely stop burning fossil fuels to produce energy within the next thirty years at most; and we have to do this in a way that also supports rising living standards and expanding opportunities for working people and the poor throughout the world. This version of a Green New Deal program is, in fact, entirely realistic in terms of its purely economic and technical features. The real question is whether it is politically feasible. Chomsky and Pollin examine how we can build the political force to make a global Green New Deal a reality.

Internationalism or Extinction Audiobook

Internationalism or Extinction

Author: Noam Chomsky Narrator: Christopher Ragland Release Date: June 2020

In his new book, Noam Chomsky writes cogently about the threats to planetary survival that are of growing alarm today. The prospect of human extinction emerged after World War II, the dawn of a new era scientists now term the Anthropocene. Chomsky uniquely traces the duality of existential threats from nuclear weapons and from climate change-including how the concerns emerged and evolved, and how the threats can interact with one another. The introduction and accompanying interviews place these dual threats in a framework of unprecedented corporate global power which has overtaken nation states' ability to control the future and preserve the planet. Chomsky argues for the urgency of international climate and arms agreements, showing how global popular movements are mobilizing to force governments to meet this unprecedented challenge to civilization's survival.

Optimism Over Despair Audiobook

Optimism Over Despair

Author: C J Polychroniou, Noam Chomsky Narrator: Ako Mitchell Release Date: June 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. We have two choices. We can be pessimistic, give up, and help ensure that the worst will happen. Or we can be optimistic, grasp the opportunities that surely exist, and maybe help make the world a better place. Not much of a choice. Another essential work from a peerless political thinker, exploring the rise of neoliberalism, the refugee crisis in Europe, the Black Lives Matter movement, the dysfunctional US electoral system, and the prospects and challenges of building a movement for radical change. Including four up-to-the-minute interviews on the 2016 American election campaign and global resistance to Trump, this Penguin Special is a concise introduction to Chomsky's ideas and his take on the state of the world today.

Occupy Audiobook

Occupy

Author: Noam Chomsky Narrator: Ako Mitchell Release Date: June 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. 'Occupy is the first major public response to thirty years of class war.' Since its appearance in Zuccotti Park, New York, in September 2011, the Occupy movement has spread to hundreds of towns and cities across the world. No longer occupying small tent camps, the movement now occupies the global conscience as its messages spread from street protests to op-ed pages to the highest seats of power. From the movement's onset, Noam Chomsky has supported its critique of corporate corruption and encouraged its efforts to increase civic participation, economic equality, democracy and freedom. Through talks and conversations with movement supporters, Occupy presents Chomsky's latest thinking on the central issues, questions and demands that are driving ordinary people to protest. How did we get to this point? How are the wealthiest 1% influencing the lives of the other 99%? How can we separate money from politics? What would a genuinely democratic election look like? How can we redefine basic concepts like 'growth' to increase equality and quality of life for all? © Noam Chomsky 2012 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Kampf oder Untergang!: Warum wir gegen die Herren der Menschheit aufstehen müssen Audiobook

Kampf oder Untergang!: Warum wir gegen die Herren der Menschheit aufstehen müssen

Author: Emran Feroz, Noam Chomsky Narrator: Sebastian Pappenberger Release Date: December 2018

Noam Chomsky ist einer der wichtigsten Denker der Gegenwart. Der emeritierte MIT-Professor am weltbekannten Massachusetts Institute of Technology gilt als ein 'Mann für alles'. In diesem Buch spricht Chomsky über die großen Fragen: Warum herrscht auf unserer Welt weiterhin so viel Ungleichheit? Leben wir bereits in der Dystopie? Steht die Menschheit am Rande der Selbstauslöschung? Warum begehren die '99 Prozent' nicht gegen die 'Eliten', die 'Herren der Menschheit', wie Chomsky sie einst nannte, auf? Kaum jemand kann all dies besser beurteilen als Noam Chomsky, der fast ein ganzes Jahrhundert Revolution, Revolte, Krieg und Zerstörung hinter sich hat und dennoch optimistisch ist. Das sollte uns alle ermutigen weiterzumachen, denn einen anderen Ausweg haben wir nicht.
