On Power, Dissent and Racism documents a series of talks and conversations with writer and MIT professor Noam Chomsky in 2002 in New York City and Cambridge, Massachusetts. With rigorous analysis and humour, Chomsky presents his reflections on the motivations behind 9/11 and its consequences on the international system. In this one-hour documentary Chomsky starts with the principle that we need to think globally if we want to understand the word of today. He defines the notion of terrorism within its historical context and gives his thoughts on how we should fight without exercising the politics of the most powerful. Among many others topics, Chomsky also gives his personal views on the role of the media in the war on terrorism, and on racism against Arabs and Muslims since 9/11.
