Noam Chomsky: ‘There’s never been a moment in human history’ like this one | TheHill

World-renowned scholar and activist Noam Chomsky said humans are living through the darkest and most consequential time in history.

Speaking on Hill.TV, Chomsky said the current age is a “point of confluence of severe crises,” including the threat of nuclear war, climate change, a raging pandemic, economic depression and racial unrest in the United States.
