Recorded live in Washington D.C. on December 10, 1993.
In 1992, Bill Clinton was elected President of the United States. After 12 years of a Republican White House, voters hungry for "change" believed Clinton when he promised a new vision, a new activism, and a new direction for the US. In The Clinton Vision, Noam Chomsky speaks about the President's actions on NAFTA, health care, crime, labor relations, foreign policy and the economy.
Noam Chomsky is a tireless and principled spokesperson for the progressive movement, as well as a linguist who has revolutionized the study of language. One of the world's leading intellectuals and political critics, and author of over 30 books on contemporary issues, Chomsky lectures to standing-room-only audiences around the globe. This is his first speech to be released on compact disc.
"Chomsky has been unrelenting in his attacks on the American hierarchy… [He] is up there with Thoreau and Emerson in the literature of rebellion." - Rolling Stone
"If the job of a rebel is to tear down the old and prepare for the new, then this is Noam Chomsky, a 'rebel without a pause,' the 'Elvis of academia….' As rock 'n roll in the '90s continues to be gagged, it is ironic that a man of 65 years turns out to be the real rebel spirit."- Bono of U2
"How adroitly [Chomsky] cuts through the crap and actually says something."- Village Voice
