This a valuable article but I have two complaints:
1. We live in a ‘democracy’ in quotation marks, while the argument Chomsky gives is de fact marxist: the solution should be something better than democracy, for marxists communism as real demoracy….etc…
2.Chomsky (and Hedges) summon up diatribes as ‘marxism rewritten’ but do not state a marxist conclusion: they are, who knows, anarchists?
This clever cooptation is so annoying it makes one think these people may as well be working for the covert agencies.
