Thoughts on Noam Chomsky?

Anthony Davis
Anthony Davis

I think he realizes that current governments are the problem, but he doesn't know that government itself is an issue.

Oh you ancaps...more like authoritianian facists

It just shows you how dumb the average Sup Forums user is. Chomsky is one of the greatest intellectuals of our time

Something is horribly wrong with our time then.

The guy goes on about Friedman not knowing shit and then starts talking about too big to fail being a problem as if it is something Friedman would support. Dude is a cunt.

Not knowing "our time" is one of the worst times possible for a true intellectual to thrive.

I like Chomsky when I'm quoting him for leftists to prove a point.

But I think he's a neoliberal gatekeeper. Supposedly, he was the most watched man by the NSA, and that may be. But all of his policy prescriptions tell you to go along with the system as long as it gives you more bread and circus. I'm absolutely suspicious of the man while reinvigorated by some of his critiques.

Samuel Bennett

It doesn't exist. Friedman destroyed South America and is only loved by th few rich people in the US... You guys really need to listen to Peter Joseph he's the truth he's like Chomsky evolved

Pure lefty fantasy.

Bentley Rodriguez

Perhaps. It's just something I've heard tossed around.

He does make trenchant comments about US foreign policy, but I think that's where his use ends.

Opinion discarded.

That """movie""" had a major factual error in the first 5 min by saying that the Jesus myth came from a bunch of other gods that had the same exact characteristics. Jesus' story does originate from others, but he played it up so fucking hard.

Lol the story of Jesus is a myth you christcuck. Nothing he said in any of the Zeitgeist films were wrong you fucknut

Logan Baker

He's extremely deluded. He claims there is some vast international "neoliberal" (a literally made up term by the way) conspiracy to "steal" wealth from the government (as if government can even create wealth in the first place) and give it to private companies all over the world. It's total bullshit that helps corrupt governments destroy the private sector in the name of socialism or "da people."

His voice is pretty nice though.

he's a lying Jew communist.

honestly it's no deeper than that

Jace Carter
Jace Carter

He's a fucking commie.

He detests current governments because they are not commie enough for his liking, but he refuses to accept government itself as the problem because he knows communism is only possible with strong government.

WTF is happening to Sup Forums? Chomsky is positively drunk on Godless communism. How can you not see this? Are we seriously coming to a time when Sup Forums refuses to recognize one of the world's foremost card-carrying commie assholes as nothing more than a communist?

Tell me now. Have the summerfags changed us this much?

what is wealth inequality?

If you increase the earnings of select group of individuals you can easily increase the GDP of a country without actually increasing its standard of living. See Brazil for a good example of this fact.

Jordan Bailey
Jordan Bailey

The Chicago Boys were only ever in Chile, so even if you think Chile was a failure (it was not) they didn't destroy SA like in your first post.

Yeah, summer is right.

Yeah that's not what i asked for though. SA was destroyed by NEOLIBERAL policies - not the Chicago boys. Chile's economy IMPROVED under Pinochet and STAYED THERE after he was gone. Retard.

Connor Ward

Tariffs are a huge state intervention. Only moronic libertarians that unironically worship the constitution think that it isn't. The United States was founded on a corrupt interpretation of classical liberalism.

Jack Richardson

he doesnt practice what he preaches

Jason Sullivan
Jason Sullivan

They are state intervention no doubt, but a government is first and foremost there to protect its people. Tariffs ensure that the people are protected without harming them as well. This is not like income taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, today, which can be said to help people, but harm the citizens as well.

I swear the end pisses me off the most. He goes on, "Now let's look at the present" and the example he uses to explain that the free market is a bad thing is that big banks are subsidized by the government. It's like, what the fuck

Noam Chomsky is the lefts shitty version of Thomas Sowell

Liam Sanchez

Eli Collins
Eli Collins

how is this a bad example? Too big to fail is a direct result of a market system. Markets eventually create monopolies.

Ian Hughes
Ian Hughes

The irony here is that Sowell has dedicated his entire career to avoiding honest work. The only difference between him and Chomsky is that no university would be stupid enough to keep him on the payroll for very long, which is why he now works as a professional shill (see his comments on Trump for proof.)

Dominic Campbell
Dominic Campbell

He's one of the sources of the cancer that's killing the west. Chomsky and Howard Zinn are the patient zeros of cultural relativism and the whole 'how can we decry other nations if we've done bad things in the past/are currently doing bad things' business.

Pic related is an example of a chomskyite in the real world, fresh from cuckbook.

Samuel Foster
Samuel Foster

The issue is that in a free market the too big to fail banks would've collapsed, and either been restructured by competent people, or smaller regional banks would have taken their place. The problem is that by bailing out these "too big to fail" banks is that their systemic issues of poor lending are still there.

Mason Rivera
Mason Rivera

I would have to disagree with him on his opinions of Trump to feel the same as you do.

Isaac Watson
Isaac Watson

Zinn was far, far worse. Chomsky is just obsessed with muh neoliberalism. Zinn was wholeheartedly committed to perpetuating self-hate among (white) Americans. His shitty book basically made American history out to be one genocide after another, the blame for which was always placed squarely on the shoulders of white americans regardless of economic class.

Brody Lee
Brody Lee

everything he says is complete bullshit

David Hernandez
David Hernandez

while i agree with not bailing out the banks you understand it would have lead to a deep global depression right? Can hardly blame the government for bailing them out when its either that or dealing with a revolting population. Imagine if the government had set a limit to how much assets/capital a single bank could have access to before too big to fail ever became a thing. Wouldn't you market cucks be crying wolf bc 'state intervention' yet its the free market which lead to too big to fail in the first place.

Andrew Russell
Andrew Russell

This. He was a pretty shit linguist. What he did do, like all in the vanguard of their fields, was being a rigor not previously realized. Much like any other groundbreaker in any other field. His work, while a failure overall, contributed greatly to linguistics in general and machine languages in particular.

Juan Wright
Juan Wright

He didn't offer any critique of Trump's economic strategy though. He just Godwinned an entire magazine issue through character assassination.

Liam Hall
Liam Hall

He is either a liar or woefully misinformed re: politics. Saw him speak years ago and led entire, impressionable Univ. of Florida (sizable) audience to believe Brazil is the paragon of successful democracy and progress. True, it is- however, the image he projected was one of beauty and the pinnacle of brotherhood of man.

What the fuck? If you run into him, have him do me a favor check out Liveleak and get back to me. He should stick with linguistics,

Adam Johnson
Adam Johnson

he doesn't know that government itself is an issue.

You're saying that a life-long anarchist doesn't know that the government itself is the issue? OK.

Nicholas Ward
Nicholas Ward

Banks have acted incredibly risky because they know governments have been and will be there to bail them out. We never should've bailed out the savings institutions back in the day to begin with.

Kayden Smith

may have sucked for a year or two, maybe even four, but we're in a worse spot now imo because of it.

Luis Lopez

Is economic strategy the only significant qualification for a presidential candidate?

Eli Fisher

My understanding is the other part of the argument is that government regulators were putting pressure on banks to give risky loans to meet diversity quotas.
