Noam Chomsky…. “the libertarian”

I will never understand why some people consider Noam Chomsky as a libertarian….

He should be called what he really is and himself acknowledges being:  a SOCIALIST.

“Ron Paul is a nice guy”…. and his policies are “off the wall”.

“Capitalism without government would lead to corporate tyranny”

17 seconds later….

“Corporations cannot live without a powerful nanny state”

The whole video of his lecture at Kutztown University on Nov. 21, 2011.

    Well, actually he would call himself a “libertarian socialist” (i.e. a left-wing anarchist), though technically I think he is definitely more state socialist than libertarian, defending the welfare state, state regulation of the economy… with some glimpses of anarchist or libertarian thought thrown in. Which makes a contradictory mess, as the two quotes in your blogpost show quite well. Roderick Long has summed it up as “augustinian anarchism” (lord, grant me anarchy, but not yet):

    To me it sounds like the “dictatorship of proletariat” as the necessary step before no government….
    I would tell him that Rueff’s line “Be liberals or be socialists, but do not be liars.”
    Obviously Chomsky is the second and the third.

    In any case, he is a gnome 😉
