What is he talking about?

Noam Chomsky is amazing as usual! For his entire career this person has been on the payroll (for 65 years) of one of the main Academic institutions (MIT) that create this dominant class and the ideological environment in which we live. Then he comes on stage and makes, apparently, one of his many speeches against that same system that nourishes and sponsors him! Isn’t that just one more sign of the sophistic age we live in? Apart from the usual concatenation of interpretations that he claims to be “facts” in this video he also spreads, once again, the common ideology of the so-called “democracy” as being this amazing system, that if “the people” would have been heard, we would not be in such and such situation! Isn’t this one of the most vulgar forms of contemporary ideology? As far as I can remember, “the people” voted to give hemlock to Socrates, to crucify Jesus, and to elect and strongly support Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler and many, many more (too many to be just coincidences). If we have the dominant class that we have, it is exactly because the majority of people fully identify with them! Senatores boni viri, senatus autem mala bestia (translation: Senators are good men, the Senate, on the other hand, is an evil beast).
One possible question on the topic of “The Emerging World Order” (whatever this means apart from the reference to his book “The emerging New World Order”, 2012) is: if universities, instead of indoctrinating students with the most vulgar ideologies of our sad times, spreading legitimized ignorance, and providing entry tickets to the system of power, would instead offer real education, would we still be where we are now? In this video, Chomsky even criticizes the same Mario Draghi who received a degree from the same institution (MIT) where Chomsky has received a comfortable income for his entire life! Are we so intellectually corrupted that we cannot perceive this paradox anymore? The fact that people like Chomsky and his fellows, can be taken seriously seems to me just one further proof of the disaster into which our society is sinking.
The “Emerging World Order”, to use Chomsky’s expression once again, is strongly supported by contemporary academia and his ancillary role of corroboration of any form of corruption in power. And this is one of the many reasons why contemporary Academia has nowadays developed into the worst enemy that knowledge has ever faced in human history. Not even Caligula or the Caliph Omar (the one who allegedly ordered General Amr ibn al-As to destroy what remained of the Library of Alexandria with the famous sentence, “If those books are in agreement with the Quran, we have no need of them; and if they are opposed to the Quran, destroy them!”) have been so dangerous to human knowledge as the contemporary diploma mills that all over the globe are selling “darkness as light, and light as darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20). It is mostly because of the role of Academia in the contemporary world that ideas have almost no place in our society and opinions have the dominance in quite every field (see the difference between ideas and opinions in Platonic epistemology), basically turning intelligence into either deviousness or stupidity. Dreadful for us are all the consequences of such a horrendous confusion of darkness with knowledge.
