bonn_tanja: One of the best attributes of human beings is that they're adaptable; one of the worst attributes of human beings is they are adaptable. They adapt and start to tolerate abuses, they adapt to being involved themselves in abuses, they adapt to adversity... Noam Chomsky

HelenaBrors: Henry Kissinger, Noam Chomsky find rare common ground over Ukraine war

birthandbiology: This. Is indeed a thing of beauty. Guardian journalist who is not (ahem) noted supporter of woman's rights is reminded by Noam Chomsky that it is only since 1975 that women have been persons, not property, in the US. Lest we forget. Lest we, indeed, forget.

TimNissen1: YouTube videos by Chris Hedges. I would also encourage you to go ahead and read a book like Noam chomsky's profits over people and Wendy Brown's In The Ruins Of Neoliberalism: The Rise Of Anti-Democratic Politics in the West. If you don't know that we're funding Nazis in Ukraine

AllenBetrix: Henry Kissinger and Noam Chomsky

Koolguywill21: I like words more than pictures thats prob why i like twitter more shoutout noam chomsky

polanskydj: Not as rare as one might think—if you table Chomsky’s normative critiques, his actual analyses of geopolitics look pretty damn realist.

davidcnswanson: “unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.” A Google search for this phrase finds “About 2,430,000 results” (in 0.42 seconds). Out of curiosity, we might search for “unprovoked invasion of Iraq.” The search yields “About 11,700 results” (in 0.35 seconds)

HelpfulLalique: Interesting to see Owen Jones today split out the LGB from the T. Maybe there was some sort of brain cell osmosis between him and Noam Chomsky

tonymc39: “Professor Chomsky, we hope you will re-evaluate your conclusions. If you truly value Ukrainian lives we would kindly ask you to refrain from adding further fuel to the Russian war machine by spreading views very much akin to Russian propaganda”

Emran_Feroz: A must-read. Looking forward to read Chomsky's answer.

NickWilliams33: An excellent response to Chomsky's recent absurd comments which whitewash Russia's invasion of Ukraine, show his appalling ignorance of Crimea as he implicitly blames NATO and engages in whataboutism w/regard to war crimes committed by Russian forces.

GundergroundJG: "Russia is not the only nuclear power in the world. Other countries, such as China, India, Pakistan, and North Korea are watching. Just imagine what will happen if they learn that nuclear powers can get whatever they want using nuclear blackmail."

dingledodie77: Chomsky getting rightfully roasted. "Such an attitude denies the agency of Ukraine and is a slap in the face to millions of Ukrainians who are risking their lives for the desire to live in a free country."

expressiveegg: Tate Gallery Director: Our gallery was built on the slave trade and it glorifies the crimes of the British empire. Is there anything we can do about this? We wouldn’t want to upset lefties after all. Advisor: Stick a video of Noam Chomsky in one of the rooms? Director: Brilliant.

wittgenfine: BREAKING NEWS: Slavoj Žižek signs bout agreement to fight Noam Chomsky in upcoming YouTube boxing match

KosherRedPill: Who still listens to Noam Trotsky? Chomsky, along w/ * Crenshaw's Intersectionality * Zinn's historiography * Alinsky's tactics * Said's foreign policy is among the most ruinous "academics" in Western history.

Dr_Francia66: Notice how all the books and shit they have in here is just pop bullshit that’s pumped out en masse by wannabe revolutionary millennials. Doesn’t seem like these people are delving into Deleuze, Gramsci, or hell, even Noam Chomsky lol.

jackisabigot: Also Noam Chomsky, Michael Tracy...

VictorRud: Calling out Noam Chomsky re: his preposterous assertions about Russia's war against Ukraine.

Financs1: Henry Kissinger, Noam Chomsky Find Rare Common Ground Over Ukraine War

psalmsgood: Henry Kissinger, Noam Chomsky find rare common ground over Ukraine war

arpitrage: Chomsky argued that recursion was the defining human language trait. It's been seen to a limited extent, apparently, among Japanese songbirds and forest monkeys. Noam Chimpsky over here seems to have it in spades

genecat1: Noam Chomsky about Ukraine and NATO [2022]

lindabrown7777: When it comes to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, both recently advocated for Ukraine to consider a settlement that could see it dropping claim to some land to achieve a quicker peace

doctor_whobot: The Doctor and Noam Chomsky explore a disappointing Premier Inn, where they battle the Cybermen

genecat1: Noam Chomsky FULL INTERVIEW: on Ukraine, Brexit and “the most dangerous ...

Newsweek: The pair, from opposing ends of the political spectrum, recently advocated for Ukraine to consider a settlement in order to achieve a quicker peace deal.

owhy3: Chomsky exposes the hypocrisy of western countries criticizing China for the fate of Uyghurs. While he might be misinformed about Xinjiang, he knows about Israeli repression, that the US supports, and calls it out.

_sHx_: Noam Chomsky is on the same page as Kissinger too re Ukraine. The world's gone topsy turvy.

EqualiSource: “Power is increasingly concentrated in unaccountable institutions” – Noam Chomsky

SamRamani2: Noam Chomsky says that Henry Kissinger should be prosecuted for war crimes. But they both align on Ukraine.

Golovchenko_Yev: And yes, I know that Noam Chomsky is not a social scientist by training. Yet, his theories on propaganda have been influential also here. And frankly, I will continue teaching them if I get an opportunity for this again.

AarzooAly: “How it is we have so much information, but know so little?” — Noam Chomsky

kennethmulvena: Noam Chomsky and Henry Kissinger on the same side of a foreign policy issue. Wow

MisterMaxCy: I dont know guys, maybe I am getting old, I find myself reflecting thoughts or rightwingers or "realists". Maybe I am fed up w the left wing illusions. It is not just Henry Kissinger, it is Steven Cohen, John Meirsheimer and others.Noam Chomsky as well.

ChrisHarihar: When I got into PR, unlearning academic writing was weirdly difficult. Fortunately, there were some awesome reporters early on who were like, Chris, cool pitch about a music app but did you really need to quote Noam Chomsky in it.

ChomskyDotInfo: ‘There are straightforward solutions’: Noam Chomsky talks Boris Johnson, climate change, Covid and Ukraine

ChomskyDotInfo: Noam Chomsky: ‘American democracy is in very serious danger’

ChomskyDotInfo: Noam Chomsky: US Military Escalation Against Russia Would Have No Victors

KerrAvon4: It's especially ironic considering how the anti-war left has portrayed him as a borderline supervillain for decades (not without cause), and here he is suddenly sounding like Noam Chomsky.

skittishprey: You either die interesting but flawed or you live long enough to see yourself become Noam Chomsky rn

progressivepush: Noam Chomsky: The Supreme Court Is Wielding Illegitimate Authority in the US

intertah: By the end of this war, three things will be ruined: (1) The livelihood of many Ukrainians; (2) The majority of the RUS army; (3) The reputation of Western politicians and intellectuals, who demanded to appease the oppressor inst of siding w the oppressed.

GC_Vermontah: Noam Chomsky and Henry Kissinger agreeing on something. We live in interesting times.

ieremiahnewell: Henry Kissinger was born in 1923. Just saying.. Um, he and Noam Chomsky, solving the world's problems. lol

rezzyredhonky: We should make Henry Kissinger and Noam Chomsky have a cage fight to the death. Meaning we don’t let them out until *both* are deceased.

unflicuneballe: Noam Chomsky? Oh you mean spicy Bernie Sanders

pIasticecstasy: walking into the exam knowing bo burnham said noam chomsky wears a strapon

TonyFigs3: Below: Eisenhower and Orwell agree. Of course, Eisenhower said what he said about the MIC three days before leaving office - as president, he sung a different tune. Noam Chomsky: "If the Nuremberg principles were applied every post-WW2 would be hanged."

Conde_Michel: Open Letter to Noam Chomsky (and other like-minded intellectuals) on the Russia-Ukraine war

hd__angel_: Not to linguistics-post but this is one of the best takedowns of LLM hype I've read, and a pretty good read otherwise too

CaseyDanson: Noam Chomsky: The Supreme Court Is Wielding Illegitimate Authority in the US

parekh_time: Noam Chomsky - The Jewish Lobby

p1z4T: Noam Chomsky calls it manufacturing consent I think.

PoetryGrief: do you think Noam Chomsky knows grief?

PersistentRumor: Quote of the Day “The world is a very puzzling place. If you’re not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else’s mind.” Noam Chomsky

franciscoacosta: Quote of the Day “The world is a very puzzling place. If you’re not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else’s mind.” Noam Chomsky

SaraLSirota: Gustavo Petro & Francia Marquez Mina are poised to win election as Colombia's first left-wing government. They're facing death threats, including a failed assassination plot against Petro. Rashida Tlaib, Noam Chomsky, and other figures from 20+ countries are sounding the alarm.

HessePhillips: 1) A little bit of Chomsky by my side... 2) Everybody (dun, dun-dun-dun-dun-dun) rock your Chomsky... 3) Chomsky, and then just Chomsky, until I get my... Chomskyfaction(?) 4) Do you ChomSKY in life after love? 5) Noam Chomsky se enamorado de ti (that one's actually a real song)

joliemiller: Noam Chomsky: The Supreme Court Is Wielding Illegitimate Authority in the US

ChrisDYork: A group of Ukrainian academic economists have written an open letter to Noam Chomsky to highlight “several recurring fallacies in your line of argument”.

TheMysteriousHC: "Resist" of Boston MA (whoever they are) ludicrously misjudged me with an endorsement by Noam Chomsky, an arrogant person who never retracts or apologizes, and has a Manichaean view of people, so in his eyes Faurisson is a saint, while >50% of Israelis are pure evil, nothing else

ancapquotes: "If we don't believe in free expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all." - Noam Chomsky

TomLondon6: Concentration of wealth yields concentration of political power. And concentration of political power gives rise to legislation that increases and accelerates the cycle - Noam Chomsky

WhirlwindWisdom: The nature of a political settlement, the general nature of it, has been pretty clear on all sides for quite some time. In fact, if the U.S. had been willing to consider them, there might not have been an invasion at all.  Chomsky

WhirlwindWisdom: The right question is: What is the best thing to do to save Ukraine from a grim fate, from further destruction? And that’s to move towards a negotiated settlement.  Chomsky

H33LToe: I’ve heard Noam Chomsky called a tankie. This doesn’t make sense. He’s in favor of sanctions against Russia and aiding Ukraine militarily so long as these don’t lead to escalation and more death for Ukrainians. Is he a tankie for wanting negotiations rather than escalation?

Zorro72548822: Because, as the 93yo Noam Chomsky recently said, it doesn’t take a geopolitical expert to see the likely disastrous consequences of this US aggression – any 10yo child not brainwashed by our “education” system could see it. So-called liberals are the ones successfully brainwashed

WhirlwindWisdom: WWI — If you read U.S. liberal intellectuals, they were taken. They accepted it. They said: Yes, we have to stop these horrible crimes that the British Ministry of Information is concocting in order to mislead us. Chomsky

WhirlwindWisdom: It’s interesting to look at the reaction to all of this in the more civilized part of the world, the global south. They look at it; they condemn the invasion, say it’s a horrible crime. But the basic response is: What’s new?…

Sidney Lanier Poem
Tyranny.
 by Sidney Lanier

'Spring-germs, spring-germs,
I charge you by your life, go back to death.
This glebe is sick, this wind is foul of breath.
Stay: feed the worms.

'Oh! every clod
Is faint, and falters from the war of growth
And crumbles in a dreary dust of sloth,
