Noam Chomsky Condones FDR’s “Totalitarian Society” During WWII

I recently acquired a copy of the book The Trial on Trial (1946) by Lawrence Dennis and Maximilian St. George which recounts the Orwellian Great Sedition Trial of 1944. During that trial many American intellectuals were prosecuted for their pro-neutrality arguments. Dennis was one of the accused and St. George was a defence attorney involved in the proceedings.

Chomsky in the above video condones the “totalitarian society” which enabled the persecution of intellectuals who spoke for the 86% of Americans who opposed military intervention in Europe and Asia. Chomsky can be seen opining:

“during the Second World War, the forms of authority
—we had a totalitarian society basically—
and I thought that there was
some justification for that”

WWII propaganda claimed that the world was witnessing an epic tussle between the forces of Democracy and those of Totalitarianism. In reality the Allied regimes were just as totalitarian as the Axis ones. The criminalization of those who reject the FDR administration’s version of the events of WWII continues to this day, with revisionist historians in Western nations often finding themselves being incarcerated for their historical conclusions.

Chomsky has encouraged Westerners to embrace weak, anarchistic political dispensations in their nations throughout his academic career. Such prescriptions would only allow illiberal political actors such as the Zionists to further colonize our nations. However, when push came to shove in the 1930s and 40s it seems that pro-Communist, Zio-friendly totalitarianism had “some justification” for the putative “anarchist”.
