America, Noam Chomsky, Donald Trump discussed on Rob Talk Podcast


So <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> really like <Speech_Male> that Noam Chomsky <Speech_Male> explicitly <Speech_Male> saying that <Speech_Male> most of <Speech_Male> the work is done <Speech_Male> outside <Speech_Male> of elections <Speech_Male> like you <Speech_Male> know the background <Speech_Male> work in the parties <Speech_Male> with. The activism <Speech_Male> and things like that, <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> then we vote <Speech_Male> it's <Speech_Male> a process <Speech_Male> ten or fifteen <Speech_Male> minutes every <Speech_Male> four years and <Speech_Male> as <Speech_Male> fun as it is, <Speech_Male> it has that <Speech_Male> sort of reality <Speech_Male> TV trashy. <Speech_Male> You know <Speech_Male> elections <Speech_Male> they're just like <Speech_Male> that. They're they're <Speech_Male> incredibly fun. <Speech_Male> It's just like it's <Speech_Male> trash TV it's <Speech_Male> good. It's it's entertainment <Speech_Male> <Silence> that's what it is <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> actually being <Speech_Male> on the left <Speech_Male> or the progressive left <Speech_Male> where I myself <Speech_Male> to be <Speech_Male> I think <Speech_Male> like trump's kids <Speech_Male> referring. To. Here <Speech_Male> is that we have <Speech_Male> to do the work <Speech_Male> constantly we <Speech_Male> have to <Speech_Male> activate <Speech_Male> on very certain <Speech_Male> issues <Speech_Male> and then vote <Speech_Male> and then move on voting <Speech_Male> for the lesser <Speech_Male> of two evils <Speech_Male> because that's how it is in America <Speech_Male> I. Mean <Speech_Male> I'm sorry. But third <Speech_Male> party is <Speech_Male> not gonNA do anything <Speech_Male> anytime soon <Speech_Male> and I will <Speech_Male> absolutely <Speech_Male> eat my hat on that if <Speech_Male> I'm wrong. But I <Speech_Male> know that I'm not <Speech_Male> wrong on this third parties <Speech_Male> in. America <Speech_Male> they. Don't mean anything <Speech_Male> they haven't <Speech_Male> met any just look at history. <Speech_Male> You can <Speech_Male> buy this into a historical <Speech_Male> context, third <Speech_Male> party candidates <Speech_Male> even when <Speech_Music_Male> they're good only <Speech_Male> get <Speech_Male> breadcrumbs <Speech_Male> compared to <Speech_Male> the Democratic <Speech_Male> and Republican parties. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> this is not <Speech_Male> a value <Speech_Male> judgment <Speech_Male> statement. What I'm saying <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> it's <Speech_Male> just what <Speech_Male> is is <Speech_Male> the fact in <Speech_Male> America? Third <Speech_Male> parties do <Speech_Male> not work at <Speech_Male> almost <Speech_Male> any level <Speech_Male> I mean there <Speech_Male> are a couple of exceptions <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> other than that they're <Speech_Male> just not. Effective <Speech_Male> end to be very clear <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> believe that <Speech_Male> America would <Speech_Male> be much better. <Speech_Male> If we had say <Speech_Male> I don't know <Speech_Male> like five competing <Speech_Male> parties <Speech_Male> I think that <Speech_Male> that would represent <Speech_Male> the values <Speech_Male> of the people much <Speech_Male> more. So <Speech_Male> I think it's something that <Silence> we should strive for <Speech_Male> I just <Speech_Male> don't see a path <Speech_Male> in which that happens <Speech_Male> given <Speech_Male> history <Speech_Male> and the <Speech_Male> current state of affairs <Speech_Male> and the incentives <Speech_Male> that we <Speech_Male> have well, <Speech_Male> anyway <hes> <Speech_Male> that's <Speech_Male> pretty much all <Speech_Male> I've got. To rant about <Speech_Male> for right now, there <Speech_Male> will undoubtedly <Speech_Male> be more in <Speech_Male> the future. Thank <Speech_Male> you very much <Speech_Male> for tuning in I.
