Noam Chomsky: We are racing madly towards total catastrophe under the leadership of sociopathic fanatics

As the U.S. coronavirus death toll tops 150,000, we spend the hour with world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author Noam Chomsky, who says decades of neoliberal policies that shredded the social safety net and public institutions left the country ill-prepared for a major health crisis. We should understand the roots of this pandemic, he says.

AMY GOODMAN: This is Democracy Now!, Democracynow.org, The Quarantine Report. Im Amy Goodman.

The U.S. coronavirus death toll has topped 150,000 on Wednesday, the highest of any nation by far. The hardest hit states per capita are Florida, Louisiana, Arizona, Mississippi, Alabama, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas, Idaho, Tennessee and Georgia, a list that includes all seven of the original Confederate states.

Today we talk about COVID and so much more as we spend the hour with Noam Chomsky, the world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author, Professor Emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he taught for more than 50 years, now laureate professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Arizona. Author of more than 100 books. Professor Chomsky spoke with Democracy Now!s Nermeen Shaikh and I on Thursday, from his home in Tucson, Arizona about the coronavirus crisis.

1. We need to Federalize the entire healthcare "industry" from procurement to "billing"

Healthcare shouldn't be an industry and there shouldn't be people having to file for bankruptcy because they are sick. ACA is a great start, but until we get the profiteers out of the system, it's always going to be this way.

Last night, a doctor discussing on MSNBC about testing & tracing said that a 10 pack of swabs is now $400 for a 40 box! Thanks Jared
