Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I read this interview in Counterpunch this morning and came away more annoyed with Chomsky --and acquired éminence Grise-- than usual. I've a few of his books, on linguistic theory and political tracts disputing US gov benevolence, and had noticed a few years ago recycling pet peeves.

In this episode, he's evidently traded anarcho syndicalism for a US presbyterian organization model of --not even civil disobedience-- but unspecified investment rules in order to criticize the BDS movement as if Israeli "social capital" were worthless.

What. up. wit. dat?

He's neither a good teacher nor charismatic "leader". I think, his time is past.
