Some good analysis from Chomsky , as per usual. The right pretend the issue of opening up the Amazon is about freedom to use the nation's resources ; "ohh protect our national independence, it's the outsiders who tell us to protect the planet when they used up their forests, what a hypocritical attack on our sovereignty" you hear them say. As if they care from a deep , rational, nay moral, ideological perspective. Sounds plausible , and indeed most propaganda is couched in some truth. But as Chomsky points out, the reality its about the money, and the power plays behind the scenes, as usual.
That is the issue. There is no pretending about it. A country is free to use their resources as they see fit.The right pretend the issue of opening up the Amazon is about freedom to use the nation's resources ; "ohh protect our national independence, it's the outsiders who tell us to protect the planet when they used up their forests, what a hypocritical attack on our sovereignty" you hear them say.
Maybe or maybe not. As to whether it will benefit the majority or not is something we will have to see. Certainly, the majority benefitted in many countries that exploited their resources. Europe and the US are decent examples. Norway is another. There are many variables that will determine this and it is not a right / left issue. You seem to have some kind of emotional hatred of the right as if you are someone rooting for or against a football team. The actual problems are far more nuanced than my team is better or worse than yours. And, when you dig into it, about any ideology can be corrupted and harm people.It won't be the people in the great nation of Brazil who benefit from the Chicago Boys' same old economic-imperialist policies. Well, some of the elites will do very nicely out if this, but the majority will be ruined.
not sure why Chomsky is so scary to the right wing, but he has consistently, for a long long time, criticized Castro, Venezuela, and other leftist south american governments on many fronts. He is definitely a social democrat, but hardly a communist, and a big critic of the way "left" south american governments coast on commodity income, rather than educate and develop sustainable industries.
So, you use a right wing libertarian Koch brothers funded media outfit as evidence.
