REAGAN AS DEMAGOD OR PROTO-TYPE of ANTI-CHRIST?--Let's Ask Chomsky!
By Kevin Stoda
Well, somewhere (probably Mudville) people are celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Ronald Reagan.
The Lord knows why!
Reagan was certainly the main prototype of the George W. Bush (Run Up Debt and Crash the Economy) Administration and the current newly elected and re-elected Republican Spin Doctors in the USA. Many around-the-world forget that Reagan left office as the least popular USA president since "Tricky Dick" Nixon, who resigned in disgrace in 1974.
First, Chomsky pointed out Reagan's ferocious attacks on labor and fair-wages-for the average and poorest working men and women in America. Chomsky related, " There has been a huge attack against private sector unions. Actually, that's been going on since the Second World War. After the Second World War, business was terrified about the radicalization of the country during the Depression and then the war, and it started right off--Taft-Hartley was 1947--huge propaganda campaigns to demonize unions. It really--and it continued until you get to the Reagan administration."
