NEW YORK, BUNDESSTAAT NEW YORK, VEREINIGTE STAATEN18. MAI 2020QUELLE: AFPTV1. O-TON 1 - Noam Chomsky, US linguist and philosopher (Mann, 91 Jahre alt, English, 28 Sek.): 'There's no coherent leadership. It's chaotic. The presidency, the White House, is in the hands of a sociopathic megalomaniac who is interested in nothing but his own power, electoral prospects, doesn't care what happens to the country, to the world. One thing after another, it's total chaos.'2. O-TON 2 - Noam Chomsky, US linguist and philosopher (Mann, 91 Jahre alt, English, 25 Sek.): 'As soon as Trump came in, his first move was to dismantle the entire pandemic prevention machinery. At the start, defunding the Centers for Disease Control, which would deal with this. And canceling programs that were working with Chinese scientists to identify potential viruses. So the US was singularly unprepared.'3. O-TON 3 - Noam Chomsky, US linguist and philosopher (Mann, 91 Jahre alt, English, 24 Sek.): 'The United States is the bottom of the barrel. The administration simply wouldn't listen. US intelligence was bombarding the White House through January and February, saying there's a serious pandemic coming, we've got to do something. Couldn't get through. Trump only looks at his TV ratings and the stock market, which he thinks is important for his election. '4. O-TON 4 - Noam Chomsky, US linguist and philosopher (Mann, 91 Jahre alt, English, 21 Sek.): 'There's maybe 70 percent of the population, something roughly like that, that just gets by from one week to the next, living paycheck to the next paycheck. If anything goes wrong, they don’t have anything. The United States has a very weak unemployment insurance compared to other countries. It doesn't have daycare facilities. Nothing's there. It's a privatized society, very wealthy, with enormous advantages, far more than any other country, but it's in the stranglehold of private control. The ultimate neoliberal system.'
