  1. When Chomsky speaks, it is very difficult to understand him these days….I wish he took along a translator or provided subtitles.

    1. I didn’t have any trouble understanding Chomsky. Yes, his voice has changed as he’s aged.

      1. I don’t know about “covid fascism war” but he did end up voting for these atrocious neo-lib democrats.

    2. that’s interesting. I’m from Switzerland and English is not my first language. But I have no problem understanding Noam Chomsky.

  2. I had no trouble understanding Chomsky. My computer’s headset is perhaps of better quality than maxine’s.

    The half hour video program here can hardly be characterized as a discussion. It would be much more accurate to say Hedges served to prompt Chomsky with questions to which Chomsky replied with monologues.

    “The role left to public intellectuals” spoken to by aged white men is a question largely already answered by the demographics of those to whom the question has any meaning. This concept of “public intellectual” is foreign to my children’s generation.

  3. “…and that’s how we go from atrocity to atrocity.’

    A needed and refreshing voice, as always.

  4. the disgraced linguist is nothing more than an apologist for covid fascism war criminals —opbama and Clinton

  5. „Do not read so much, look about you and think of what you see there.“ — Richard Feynman letter to Ashok Arora, 4 January 1967, published in Perfectly Reasonable Deviations from the Beaten Track (2005) p. 230

    Chomsky is a reader of what he pontificates about. He is not an interviewer, a researcher or combs through the archives to arrive at his points.

    I always keep that in mind when listening to him.

  6. Some good quotes….Thanks for sharing….I don’t know what this has to do with Chomsky….His enunciation still lacks clarity, yes, probably because of his old age.
