REWIND: Noam Chomsky on the American Hegemony of Europe – History & Current State


This video is a 40-minute interview that we held with Noam Chomsky at the end of 2015, in which we discussed the American Hegemony of Europe – past & present state. The following questions and many others are addressed in this video:

  • How did the US establishment view fascist figures such as Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini before the global war began?
  • Was the US complicit or did it actively support fascism in Europe?
  • What geopolitical plans did the United States draw for the globe before World War II?
  • What is the “Grand Area” and how did it effect the security and economy of the globe?
  • How did countries such as Italy, Germany and Greece fit into this scheme and why did the US crush anti-fascist movements across Europe?
  • Was the Marshall plan a success or failure?
  • What sections of US & German society profited from the Marshall plan?
  • Why are circa 44,660 US troops and 170 military installations stationed in Germany?
  • What historical decisions are tied to US military presence in Europe & Germany ?
  • Why doesn’t Germany grant Edward Snowden the right to asylum?
  • Why are circa 44,660 US troops and 170 military installations stationed in Germany?

  • How does the military industrial complex of Germany affect the security of the populations of the countries in the Arab world?
  • Do military and arms exports promote stability in the region?

  • How should Europe politicans react when terror attacks take place such as the 13th November attack in Paris in 2015?
