Failed States



pdf 312 pages


The world's foremost critic of U.S. foreign policy exposes the hollow promises of democracy in American actions abroad--and at home

The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene against "failed states" around the globe. In this much anticipated sequel to his international bestseller Hegemony or Survival, Noam Chomsky turns the tables, charging the United States with being a "failed state," and thus a danger to its own people and the world.

"Failed states" Chomsky writes, are those "that do not protect their citizens from violence and perhaps even destruction, that regard themselves as beyond the reach of domestic or international law, and that suffer from a 'democratic deficit,' having democratic forms but with limited substance." Exploring recent U.S. foreign and domestic policies, Chomsky assesses Washington's escalation of the nuclear risk; the dangerous consequences of the occupation of Iraq; and America's self-exemption from international law. He also examines an American electoral system that frustrates genuine political alternatives, thus impeding any meaningful democracy.

Forceful, lucid, and meticulously documented, Failed States offers a comprehensive analysis of a global superpower that has long claimed the right to reshape other nations while its own democratic institutions are in severe crisis, and its policies and practices have recklessly placed the world on the brink of disaster. Systematically dismantling America's claim to being the world's arbiter of democracy, Failed States is Chomsky's most focused--and urgent--critique to date.

A failed state is when the corruption has taken over the government and the criminals run things. Yup America is a failed state.

I was disappointed when the U.S. refused to join the international community and uphold the rule of law.

That said, we are highly functional for a failed state.

Let me rephrase that - we have been highly functional, for a failed state. That may be changing if we don't find the means to ditch the current economic philosophy so dependent on the principle of deregulation.
