something by Noam Chomsky
May 11, 2017, 10:07
I do love Noam Chomsky. It's a wonder he hasn't met some Mysterious End considering the things he says. Not that he gets much airtime so most people wouldn't have heard of him. Plus we all know ignorance is as valid as intelligent thought these days.

Here's a little article from today's paper
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/may/10/labour-partys-future-lies-with-momentum-says-noam-chomsky

He mentions how anti-Corbyn the media has been. And how him being "quiet, reserved, serious, he’s not a performer" doesn't suit the current electorate. Which is funny really, because that makes him sound very British. But perhaps the British now watch too much X factor.

Also that Sanders in America and Corbyn are part of the reaction against the failures of 'neoliberal policies' just like the rise of Farage and Trump.

anyway there we are. nice to hear his take on recent events
