Tonight, I'm joined for a rare conversation with world-renowned academic and activist, Professor Noam Chomsky of MIT. Called "arguably the most important intellectual alive" by the New York Times, Chomsky joins us for a nuanced discussion on the ways in which culture and curricula are used to advance a Western worldview.
In the clip below, Chomsky explains how supremacist notions are rooted in education, and talks about the political message that the common drawing of the World Map sends.
