Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I tried to arrange a dialogue for the local public access TV between Chomsky and Bernays once upon a time.  Approached both men and got an initial agreement.  In preparation read Bernays' autobio, Biography of an Idea: Memoirs of Public Relations Counsel.  Bernays said he admired Chomsky but asked for a copy of Chomsky's book, Manufacturing Consent, before setting a date.  I bought a copy and gave it to him but, after reading it, Bernays backed out.

If memory serves, Bernays met Goebbels in the 1920s and Goebbels expressed his admiration for Propaganda, another book by Bernays.

Permanent crisis
for the adrenaline rush
in the Society of the Spectacle.

That seems to be how it works.
