Interesting comments. On the one hand, StarGladiator is questioning the validity of Chomsky's Progressivism, quite nuanced. On the other hand, tascosa01 is (most likely) a Conservative sheep. baaaaaaa

[Update, presidential election of 2016: Now how in creation could Chomsky, if he is anything such as he claims to be, possibly support HRC as the lesser of two evils, given what I stated below?!?!?!? And yet Chomsky did, always the supporter of the Status Quo is Chomsky!]
This is all very nice, or nicey, and all very general, or cotton-candy flavored, but who are the names of the bad actors, the names of the oligarchs, the names of the super-rich - - for some reason, Chomsky never mentions their names?!!?!? [For instance, Hillary Clinton was chair, and Timothy Geithner was deputy chair, of the Millennium Challenge Corporation, which financed the overthrow of the democratically elected president of Honduras, President Zelaya, because he wished to raise the national minimum wage by a few pennies. Why doesn't this so-called activist ever say such, or do anything at least on level with what the young Aaron Swartz did? Why????]
