The new Norm

Via Robot Wisdom auxiliary, a Google search on “norm.chomsky -noam” is amazingly productive.  I like to make predictions so here’s one:  ten years after his death ‘Norm’ will be completely forgotten, and those who were his champions will be embarrassed to have been associated with him.  It is not a coincidence that the leading American ‘progressive’ writer is active during a time when there is absolutely no progressive politics in the United States.  Note how Norm’s friend, Jean Bricmont, provides useful advice, while Norm just whines and obfuscates.
