de la servitude moderne - le livre « Mon optimisme est basé sur la certitude que cette civilisation va s’effondrer. Mon pessimisme sur tout ce qu’elle fait pour nous entraîner dans sa chute. » La servitude moderne est une servitude volontaire, consentie par la foule des esclaves qui rampent à la surface de la Terre.

Is Iraq an unfinished business of the US invasion of 2003, or is the situation there merely the inevitable outcome of the strategic agenda of the Empire of Chaos? Noam Chomsky: "Inevitable" is a strong word, but the appearance of ISIS and the general spread of radical jihadism is a fairly natural outgrowth of Washington wielding its sledgehammer at the fragile society of Iraq, which was barely hanging together after a decade of US-UK sanctions so onerous that the respected international diplomats who administered them via the UN both resigned in protest, charging that they were "genocidal."
