    Amid a wave of scandals involving rape, sexual assault and harassment, famed linguistics and world affairs professor Noam Chomsky of MIT has been accused by three women of harassment.
    Nora Whitmeyer, a former student and subsequent librarian in the linguistics department, reported that Chomsky repeatedly whispered the phrase, “If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.”
    Abigail Summers also reported that the professor repeated phrases in her ear, including, “Case by case, we find that conformity is the easy way, and the path to privilege and prestige; dissidence carries personal costs.”
    They said it drove them insane.
    A third woman, who requested anonymity, stated that in 1955, when Chomsky was only an assistant professor, stopped her in the library and asked point blank, “What is the difference between Continental liberalism, English liberalism, and Old Whiggism?
    One cannot fathom what type of psychological impact this would have on any of us, but few people can withstand that kind of pointed aggression for very long. We have tried to get a statement from professor Chomsky but it is extremely difficult to get around his schedule of naps.
    MIT has declined to comment at this time.

    There is no greater example of a Marxist sociopath Narcissist
    than Noam Chomsky. He predicted EXACTLY this same end of the World
    garbage on Ronald Reagan and the Republican Party.
    Absolutely the biggest blowhard for Socialism, a
    massive De Constructionist with severe
    nihilistic tendencies, a classic Maoist semantic, mesermizing
    millions into a Stockholm Syndrome of imminent capitalist
    and always environmental disaster.
    Pick up any fugue state dialectical mass murder
    tome of Noam Chomsky and go to the
    bibliography and notes.
    Witness the endless page after page
    quotes of his very own previous words and books
    as if source and corobboration are one and the same, himself.
    Him and Joseph Campbell are next to the
    $1 Billion CITIZENS UNITED BANKSTER "library" man,
    Barak Obama, the
    biggest semi Faust intellectual
    snake oil vipers for $ dollars, since the Marxist
    Pablo Picasso with his pockets stuffed with ENDLESS $100 bills
    from evil capitalist art millionaires.

    Chomsky paints too rosy of a picture of the progress we are making as a society. Trump was elected because the liberal left, a party I had been part of for almost 60 years has become hopelessly corrupt. Trump was elected because something was needed to stop the ungodly corruption in the left. And the fact that Sanders decided to support Hillary after she had put a knife in his back showed me what he was made of. Anyone that thinks change can be made within a totally corrupt political system is a fool and part of the problem. The lesser of two evils is still evil. No one ever seems to think about that.

    We've dealt with pretty lousy Presidents since Reagan. Republicans and Democrats have failed the US citizens and they caused the Trump phenomenon. Trump represents the frustrations people feel towards career politicians which can be taken care of by term limits. No more career politicians.

    I don't dispute Chomsky's points, but there is another factor to consider. After WWII, the industrial nations were in ruins having been bombed or fought over for six years. The sole exception was the US. There was a delay switching from wartime production, after which US industry could sell anything unopposed anywhere in the free world. It became fabulously rich. With the American pie expanding, workers reaped the benefits. By the 70's, Germany and Japan in particular had recovered to the point that US industry had real competition, particularly as US wages were higher. When the Japanese faced greater production costs 15 years later, they began opening plants in other parts of Asia, then South America and Europe, so too did the Germans. US manufacturers in the 70's were not smart enough to move manufacturing off shore, and really only got going after NAFTA. With the American pie now shrinking, the fight by the wealthy to hang on to their privileges shifted into high gear, hence increasing wage inequality.

    As much as I like Chomsky his statement on Greenspan is distorted here. I listened to the testimony of Greenspan to verify what Chomsky said and he didn't say that in that context. Greenspan's statement was explanatory as to why while Chomsky is saying Greenspan made it so. Big difference.

    This silky-smooth operator is a Rothschild Diinformation Agent through and through.....Chumpsky categorically refuses to debate The Rothschild Central Banking System which in turn controls the worlds Governments, Military, Communication, Health, Education, Science and very importantly The Media........9/11 is also off limits with Chumpsky so it's The Real Issues Plaguing our society as a whole Chumpsky refuses to debate.
    Judging by his love of the lime lite, Zionist overtures and the afore mentioned, I think it's safe to state that Chumpsky an Egotistical well paid Rothschild Disinformation Agent that wants to keep the likes of you and I 'looking the other way' or in simpler terms 'not prying into the affairs of The Rothschild Banking System of which I am sure Chumpsky is in the employ of........don't take my word for it, go do some delving yourself or else go back to sleep.

    Chomsky often described himself as an Anarchist and that pretty well shapes his world view and his focus. As an Anarchist Chomsky advocates for worker owned means of production (manufacturing, agriculture, fisheries, etc...) or in other words worker co-ops. If you listen to Chomsky in this video he talks a lot about the history of labor in America and the world which is great interest to him.
    An economy where the majority of workers actually own the assets and therefore make the decisions as to how the money is spent would look radically different from America today. In the world today there very few examples of large scale co-ops that have a significant influence on their city or even their country. The country with the highest number of co-ops in the world is the USA. I'll bet you the MSM will keep this information very quiet.

    I tend to agree with what Chomsky is talking about generally speaking, simply because I'm a cynical fuck like he is. And I tend to view all of humanity as a sick joke.
    That being said I'm trying to see the silver lining in things as I get older, and it gets real hard.
    So my issue with Noam then has become, HE NEVER has any good realistic advice! It's always how everyone was wrong and it's Americas fault. If a cow farts in the wind in China, somehow America caused it.
    He can point to the problems and faults all day long in some long winded diatribe, and break down the cause and effect of all Geo-political issues, but he NEVER has anything positive to say. He never seems to grasp the concept how political power throughout human history is ugly and sometimes necessary.
    I get sticking up for the underdog, but for fuck sake's, sometimes the under dogs are worse and have shittier laws.
    It's all doom and gloom with no common ground advice to the everyday person. Is there anything our society has done to his liking? I mean it always sounds like America is the only society that has done horrible shit.
    When some other country is shown to have done awful shit, he immediately points to some shit America or the West has done. I'm no defender of our governments, but goddamn, I like some of the shit the west has produced.....like computers, movies, air travel, to name a few.

    The only think that bothers me is notice the description source: "democracynow.org"... I am sick an tired of this term being expressed all over the news channels and by various intellectuals. You don't need a degree in American history to know that we are not a democracy; we are a Republic. One only needs to read the Pledge of Allegiance, The Constitution of the US and the States to come to the conclusion that we are in fact a Republic. When will schools and Universities teach our history in that context? The answer is never, because they desire to abolish it from our minds and our hearts. Today’s school kids are often being taught that “majority rule” is the fairest form of government - This is quite the opposite. It destroys individualism and can foster a pack-thought mentality. Democracy will lead one into anarchy "a state of disorder due to absence or nonrecognition of authority"....

    THE AMERICAN EMPIRE IS CLOSE TO TOTAL COLLAPSE.
    '''ALL''' Empires of the past collapsed - their attempts at world domination came to an end - and all they left were ruins - ruins which are but a tourist attraction today. Those ruins litter the earth as evidence of there failure to maintain control and provide a rule that benefited all those they ruled over.
    They became so diverse because of their conquests - that they lost that which made them great in the first place their uniqueness of race and culture which they self destructed in filling their own house with the slaves of the many nations they conquered.
    Those 'slaves' eventually became nations within that empire and started the decline of a once great power as it became divided from within - and with many enemies from without - it was now ready for the slaughter.
    THERE GOES AMERICA.

    Sanders supporters are utopian dreamers that forget that 500 million Africans and Latinos will flood into the USA looking for those Socialized handouts. This will drop wages making everyone poor except for the Elites. Look at Europe with the boat people.
    George Soros will personally pay for boat loads of Africans to migrat to the USA as he does for Europe.

    Disagree with his Progressive Labor views. Higher taxes to support Sanders Socialism will drive more businesses elsewhere. Also higher taxes on business causes them to raise prices on their products or services. We are in a computerized global economy that can function easily when the base is located in low taxation Ireland. Example is Intel.
    With Socialism we lose control of borders and starving Latins will flood in reducing wages. With the middle class destroyed, beauty shops and other business go out of business. The Elites can reduce wages to citizens due to centralized control.
    Trump is making a last stand for the middle class. When he is gone our country will collapse into a lower class and the upper upper class. The USA will disappear. The great experiment will be over. Free Speech will be banned. There will be no savior, Totalitarianism will begun to evolve. We will be ruled by the insulated corrupt. We will be like Venezuela..

    Chomskies a huge fraud, he purposefully incites the poor masses towards dangerous actions by dancing around with flowery rhetoric in order to confuse less intellectually driven peoples, precisely like a communist does. Chomsky is a communist at heart and a dangerous person in American history because instead of trying to build up America, the country he claims to be about, his every action is to dismember America slowly and passively over time by slowly and methodically chipping away at America, and other nations, the very things that have made those nations great in the first place. Don't ever trust this man, he's pure evil

    "The country has become much more civilized in the past 50 -60 years" Another clueless statement from the intellectual genius. Does Chomsky know what day it is? Is he aware of the American economy flourishing, minority unemployment at an all time low, closer step to world peace by meeting with NK. Chomsky has more intelligence in his fingernail than I will ever amass but at least I don't lie to myself in the face of this reality and that has made all the difference.

    Globalist, wealth transfer, extremist, minority loving, tax loving, majority hating Jews worry me. Intellectuals do not work or understand the world of real work, real builders, making real wealth like Trump or Ford Motor Company. The lust of the extremist globalist Jews is globalism, technology, immigration, and counterfeit currency. These are all four forms of theft, invading, cheating, killing, and lying for loot. Should we make the country shit, worse off? Idealistic Jews like Marx caused the deaths of 100,000,000 people, double what Hitler caused. Sorry Noam, it's electoral college, the United "States" not the united "people". States trump individuals, not feels or feelings. Sanders is a Jew. Chomsky is a Jew, both who have never done an honest day labor in their lives, just like Obama never had a real job. We need work, real work, not debt and taxes and snowflake liberals in "I don't want to work" Universities who want free college. I love liberals and Jews, I just don't want to pay for them and their laziness and failed programs. Chomsky is out of touch.

    America was founded on the norms of the time. The founding was an astonishing accomplishment of the times. Horrific happenings at the time of our founding continue to this day but not in America. Slavery still exists in many countries. The killing of indigenous people continues, ethnic cleansing continues but not in America. America is great based on what we accomplished in moving to a more civilized culture. Is America perfect? By no means but we continue to improve and provide a better how to live example to the rest of the world. Sorry but it's not a lot of gloom and doom.

    The United States bought 5% of the slaves sold by the Atlantic slave trade. The vast majority of them ended up in Brazil. If it's true that slavery was responsible for our wealth today, why isn't Brazil the wealthiest country in the hemisphere? And was it really the most vicious in history when the Arabs castrated their slaves or the Brazilians/Portuguese simply worked them to death because it was cheaper to replace them than it was to give them living conditions conducive to their survival?
    And if it's true that the Native Americans lost this land because they couldn't unite against outsiders, why then would white Americans believe that they should open their borders to people who the left will incite against them as you are already doing?
    And Chomsky is wrong about the country becoming more civilized. It's returning to mid 20th century style nativism and racial nationalism, just as in Europe. The reason for that is 1. the failure of capitalism and 2. the idiocy of flooding the country with cheap labor immigration during what could very possibly be a permanent economic downturn for the majority of the population. Weimar conditions produce Weimar solutions.
    We're headed for fascism, balkanization, and civil war, not your dopey multicultural utopia which the church of progress tells us is inevitable. Sorry but it foundered on the rock of Pakistani grooming gangs and astronomical levels of nonwhite violent crime forced on white neighborhoods by HUD in the name of diversity under the Obama admin. If American isn't great and if it was never great, then it's time to escape our white supremacist hell hole. There's really no excuse not to, since the nazis and white supremacists you attack with bike locks would happily go broke to give African Americans their own self governing country somewhere if it meant we could end the failed multicult experiment which enables our ruling class to divide and conquer the working class you all pretend to care about when you're not accusing them of racism.
    If the U.S. truly is a white supremacist torture dungeon for the poor, down trodden PoC, then it's not in their interest for you to import them here and subject them to this oppression. And if it isn't, then you can hardly justify perpetually putting white society on trial, affirmative action, and all the rest of your genocidal, antiwhite lunatic bullshit.
    So which is it?
    I could go on, but I think that's enough. Look, you guys have to stop pretending that the nationalist right doesn't have its own critique of free market fundamentalism and neoliberalism. They're not the Reagan/Bush right. Chomsky and the labor left are right to believe that our ruling class uses race to divided and conquer the working class, but what they are wrong about is this idea that you can trade disparate racial and ethnic identities which engender social trust so that people can rely on one another with some abstract, theoretical global proletarian class identity. That has never worked anywhere, nor will it ever. So what you're telling us is that we have to overcome "racism" *and then* we can finally pursue policy that is in the interest of families and workers?

    Chomsky is being overly optimistic about his assessment. Trump and his gang of unscrupulous criminal allies are rolling back all the social, racial, intellectual, scientific, environmental, and moral gains that this nation has achieved in the last 50 years of its tumultuous struggle against widespread ignorance, pervasive divisiveness, and social injustice. We are currently experiencing a racially-tense, billionaire-bankrolled, redneck-mentality-dominated, anti-intellectual wave that is bound to set us back for decades, and from which we might conceivably never recover. As we speak, our democratic values and institutions are severely under attack, and are being systematically dismantled in favor of greed, fanaticism, and shortsightedness.

      +Greg Lautigar ... can you name a communist country that would count as a failed experiment? I certainly can't, so I'd be interested in this supposed 'historic' record of communisms failures. Do you think the USSR was ever communist?
      There is a pacific island where the islanders have no concept of theft as they have no concept of property ownership. I think that's possibly the closest we can get in terms of examples. In that very isolated community everyone voluntarily worked to common cause as their abilities permitted and the product of that work was held in true common ownership... even of those who could not work. Everyone ate. Everyone had a boat because the village had a boat... and if they realised they needed more boats, everyone would work towards that.
      You could argue that it was perhaps a more civilised society than could be found in the more modern west. People argue that it cannot work at large scales ... or that it cannot work post-industrialisation ... but those people are usually derriving more benefit than the work they put in, and their lifestyles are propped up by the less fortunate - an essential class of poor people which must be maintained for the game to work.
      But hey, who cares, as long as you got your Nike trainers eh? If those workers didn't like living in poverty and being abused they should start their own factories... and employ who... you? No, they should create an underclass and exploit their labour. Oh great, problem solved : )

      Communism is just an ideal people are not ready for. Like pacifism... it's not a bad idea that failed... it's a good idea we need to work towards.
      Capitalisms biggest challenge may well be robotics and AI changing the currency of labour completely... the best solution to a labourless world is a society freed up to engage in art, sport and communistic living...
      ... because under capitalism, the fully automated world leaves every man woman and child disenfranchised, valueless and... most likely... starving and begging to be of any service to their corporate masters. Effectively disposable and abused.
      It's no accident that socialism grew following the industrialisation.
      Truth is, the only societies that are even remotely stable employ a careful balance of communism, socialism and capitalism, to avoid the tendancy of either ideology to destroy itself... the specific balance of these constantly shift to meet the circumstances of the times.
      Socialism, is simply what you're left with when you've solved all the other problems and contentions.

    While we should do these things like plant hemp on KY farmland and have a local hemp-to-concrete factory to process it, remember the establishment is actively undermining everything local. Your entire effort will be subverted into defensive action instead of action forward. The hemp farming will only go ahead when the establishment has control. Our two-party system is a hand-off to the other guy; recall H Ross Perot and his 3rd party.
    In his reply to a student questioner as to how to proceed, he offers a simplistic response; as if our system hasn't mastered this demand for fairness by pretending to give on one hand and take away with the other.
    Nothing short of a genuine third and forth party will give the establishment pause. Barely half the public votes now. The VISA program serves ONLY to secure a military free hand in the country of choice. It is astonishingly ironic that the VISA enjoyers laze through a decade of golf and college courses safe from bombing and social disruption while their power group traded away that very safety for their citizens.

    Sadly, Chomsky will ultimately be remembered as a Zionist gatekeeper - you can do a search "Chomsky gatekeeper" and see for yourself. Ultimately, he supports the Deep State because it supports Israel. Funny how he never encourages third parties. Vote Green.

    I just realized something about Noam Chomsky. It has always infuriated me about him that he refuses to say that 9-11 did not happen the way the government said, but this is an extremely insightful man. He already knows full well what 9-11 was but for professional reasons he is going along with the official story. But by doing so, he is selling out the truth for his own career. That is why I don't like him. Anyone who covers up the truth for any reason has no integrity. He may be very intelligent, and he undoubtedly is, but he does not have the courage and integrity to publicly say what we all know to be true. For that reason, I don't want to hear anything he has to say about anything. It is a disgrace that the lie of 9-11 is still perpetrated to this day and people like Noam Chomskey, who could make such a huge difference by supporting the truth movement but instead has sold out to the Zionists, are directly responsible for that. So fuck him.

    At the same time that operates what Chomsky sees as a positive evolution I could see a shift in morality. People do not feel any more shame on dubious ethical position and assume extremist stands. Before , anglosaxon culture would appear genuine on its motivation, lying to itself on the possible reasons of white dominance. Now the ground field is reduced to ; choose your side and do not argue about morality this is not a factor to consider.... tribalism is now the deleterious faith . The necessary education to replace religion by non mystical spirituality has not settled in US.... however criticism is very vivid and a transformation may happen.

    The reason ism and scisms will never work is, humanity's greed.
    Poverty-stricken without hope will except food stamps. The working poor will continue to work and remain silent, as long as they feel they can afford. The wealthy? Well they do what they do.
    Change doesn't occur until those at the top aren't provided for enough,
    those in the middle can't get enough and those below have had enough. The top spreads cash, start wars. The middle man works more, buys more, pays more,votes for more, and get the same. The Last and least, still get subsidized, but they get false hope until next election. Hurray!!! We Won!!!!
    Won what? 4 more of the same?
    We just change dictators.
    This isn't America.

    I don’t like Trump in the slightest. But, the rise of a Bernie Sanders is also a scary proposition in my view. Socialism does not work, just look at its history in the places where it was taken most seriously (e.g. Russia and China). China is becoming an economic powerhouse now but, that’s after they started to implement capitalist policies and practices in theirs financial market.

    Hasn't Chomsky noticed DN's swing to the right? Sucking on the anti-Putin teat and giving the Neocons a pass. Almost worse than The Guardian. He is sort of past his sell-by date. Had a good run, but may be time to call it a day and retire graciously. Sanders is bullshit.

    I love the man but I must say that when left activists paint people like Trump as basically the same as the Democrats (as Chomsky absolutely did during the campaign), I have to consider it a matter of posturing as "more radical than thou," to borrow a term I'm pleased to have heard him use to describe postmodern theorists.
