I searched for 'Chomsky', but found no actual threads discussing him on SF, only one thread where his name was mentioned randomly. Anyway, I'm not going to bother defining what he's about, as that basic information is readily available on the web. This thread is to discuss your opinions on Chomsky's political viewpoints. To get started, it might be good for us to discuss some of his articles, as they're brief enough for everyone here to read and respond to, whereas not everyone has time to read his books. (the main page from the above link additionally includes videos/ audio, which are also suitable for this thread if you prefer that medium) You can give us your general thoughts on his ideologies, or give direct feedback on one of his articles/ lectures. (be sure to include the link for us so we can read it too) I'll let someone else begin, as I don't really have any opinions to share at the moment.
