This guy is upset that the government does not have enough power over the people.

And of course he blames the evil GOP who have tripled the size of government over the last 8 years and who also supported every single thing that Obama has done so far.



Chomsky: "Obama needs more power to help us bring order out of chaos"

GOP‚€™s goal is to 'prevent governability,' renowned scholar tells Raw Story

The nature of the current recession has made it clear to most Americans that a new wave of financial reforms is necessary to prevent another crash. MIT Professor Noam Chomsky alleged that the Democratic establishment's reluctance to reestablish post-Depression type regulations is reflective of the systemic constraints on policy in America‚ "dysfunctional democracy."

Chomsky, who has written many books detailing the perils of corporate influence in politics, said in an interview that the president and his party are hamstrung by fears that banks will punish them if they implement policies that do not satisfy the industry's desires.

President Obama ‚€œis delivering, but for the financial institutions,‚€� he told Raw Story, ‚€œWhich isn‚€™t a big surprise ‚€“ that was the core of his funding. They preferred him to McCain, in fact by a considerable margin. They expected a payoff, and they got a payoff.‚€�

The Obama administration last month walked into a public relations debacle after the president told Bloomberg News in an interview that he doesn‚€™t ‚€œbegrudge‚€� banking executives making large bonuses for their ‚€œsavvy‚€� skills.
Story continues below...

‚€œThat was very revealing,‚€� Chomsky said, alleging that Obama was merely heeding the threats from the banking community.

‚€œObama months ago shifted his rhetoric and started talking about greedy bankers and even made some policy proposals the financial institutions didn‚€™t like,‚€� he continued. ‚€œAnd they didn‚€™t waste a minute. They told him right off, you continue talking like that and we‚€™re going to shift our funding to Republicans. Well they did so.‚€�

One day before the interview, the New York Times reported that J.P. Morgan, which has traditionally preferred contributing to Democrats, directed most of its cash to the GOP this year. Campaign finance trends on OpenSecrets.org reveal that financial institutions have gradually shifted their funding away from the Democratic Party and toward Republicans in recent months.

‚€œAnd Obama got the message,‚€� Chomsky said. ‚€œWithin days, he said to Bloomberg that the bankers are great guys, I‚€™m in favor of their profits and bonuses and so on; that that‚€™s the way the free market works, and I join the American people in applauding their successes.‚€�

‚€œThese are the same American people who are screaming bloody murder about all this, so that tells you something about how the country works,‚€� he added.

GOP‚€™s ‚€˜goal‚€™ is to win back power by ‚€˜making the country ungovernable‚€™

Chomsky‚€™s verdict on Obama and the Democrats may have been damning, but his take on Republicans was scathing.

‚€œThe Republican Party has transformed itself, since Reagan but much more extensively now, into a new kind of political operation,‚€� he told Raw Story. ‚€œIt‚€™s abandoned really any political programs. Its only goal has been to prevent governability.‚€�

The MIT professor said the GOP‚€™s posturing as a small-government populist organization has been a disingenuous strategy to capitalize on nationwide anger and defeat Democrats.

‚€œWhen critics call it the ‚€˜party of no‚€™ they‚€™re pretty much correct,‚€� he continued. ‚€œThey basically want to make the country ungovernable so that they can regain power and dedicate themselves to their actual constituency ‚€“ which is not tea party activists but corporate power.‚€�

Chomsky predicted the November elections won‚€™t be easy on the majority party, as ‚€œenthusiasm among Republicans is far higher than among Democrats, who are largely apathetic now.‚€�

A law needs to be passed banning people with commie names from serving in high level government and banking jobs.  Even if they change their names.

Is the coding on the OP messed up or is just my system?

I had a communist philosophy prof at community college who WORSHIPPED Noam Chomsky. It was one of the worst classes ever.

She's the one who brought in some sort of faux Luciferian guru thing to the college and tried to pass him off as a Muslim Imam. He liked to talk a lot about the Age of Aquarius and solar years; it's amazing she thought that us poor backwater kids wouldn't know the difference after watching Shock and Awe the year before. ROFL.

But yes, anyone who is still pushing this left/right shit, as relates to the gov't and its operations, doesn't see as far as he thinks... she thought he was such a great mind and all.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.

  I remember some of the crap courses I took in college.  Wouldn't it be nice if professors didn't have tenure and you didn't have to pay for the worst class you took each semester?  Then the colleges could weed out the scum classes and the scum teachers.
I'M A DEPLORABLE KNUCKLEHEAD THAT SUPPORTS PRESIDENT TRUMP.  MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND KEEP HIM SAFE.

Chomsky is an anarchist. In junior high already, he recognized major problems with communism, and supported the syndicalist system of pre-Franco Spain.
  This was a system that worked fairly well during the 10 months it lasted. Rather than having a central committee assigning everyone to a job using coercion, people have to apply to various workplaces and do a good job. You can get fired. The major difference is that most factories and large companies above the level of small businesses are owned by the workers (each one owning a share, and getting a share of profit), with major decisions made by vote. There are a few cases right now (was it United Airlines, or Delta?) where the workers bought the company.
  Anyway, the idea under syndicalism is that power is very nonhierarchical. City level government can still use delegates so that all 5000 citizens of a town don't have to go to a town meeting, but the delegates can be removed a lot more easily than politicians who are elected every 2-4 years, and are considered to be specialists who have superior decisionmaking skills and can vote against their constituents. Syndicalism also avoids the lack of work incentive that cripples communism, and it is highly adaptable so that regions with different cultures don't have to have precisely the same system and decisions. The major failing is that capitalist and communist societies have stronger militaries and will take them over.

Chomsky is an anarchist.

Chomsky is not an anarchist. Read Daniel Estulin's book about the Bilderberg Club.
He's a NWO shill. You don't have to go any further than this article. How can an anarchist argue in favour of *more* government power? Even *more* power to a government that keeps on growing in size and taking away people's rights...
The little I know from him only confirms what I read from Estulin... Obvious critics that don't actually reveal anything, pointing out only to petty wrongdoings by the US government, therefore diverting people's attention from the much more important (core) issues that constitute the root of everything that's wrong in society... Speaking out against people who don't believe the official story put out by the Warren Commission concerning the Kennedy assassination... (And I won't even go through the ridiculous position he has concerning 9/11...)

And he's apparently not alone, among hi-profile self-proclaimed anarchist University professors there in the US who are actually working for the powers-that-be. (By the way, what the hell is an anarchist doing brainwashing and domesticating the youth instead of urging them to study and think for themselves?)
I've met one myself, when I was there in the US some years ago, that I'm quite convinced was not what he claimed to be. An around 40 years-old or so, at the time, who the locals would call by the first name, trying to convince us "kids" (late teens and early twenties) at a meeting to commit acts of vandalism, only to later, during the street action, after being pushed against the wall, be the only one I've heard who was allowed to walk out of a surrounded group after, for some reason, having decided to simply drop down his arms and walk out of the ongoing collective arrest, while the police did nothing to prevent him from doing so... Therefore becoming one of the very few who was not arrested that day...
(Indeed, it stroke me as shocking and odd at the time that, the only person who would suggest for us to take such form of stupid action would be the only "adult" among us, that was supposed to be the most mature and wise of us all...)

Claiming oneself to be an anarchist and coherently behaving as such don't always go hand-in-hand, as I soon learned when I met some of the locals around here. And the thing you must always pay close attention to in any person is not the label one puts on him or herself, but what s/he does. That's what defines a person.
