Democracy – brought to you by Noam Chomsky

I don’t have any words to do him justice, so I’ll just post a bunch of links. The Buckley/Chomsky debates are much greater than anything we see today… it really shows the pathetic state of political debate on TV. I’m surprised these interviewers hold it together so well… Chomsky has brought me to tears on a few occasions.

One criticism of Chomsky: he’s intentionally deceptive when he says he’s not a great speaker. He is a great speaker, in sentence construction, persuasion, clarity, and moral force. I don’t know how to improve him as a speaker.
