Chomsky is an encyclopedia of the rotten things the U.S. government has done and is doing, and of how the ruling class uses propaganda to enforce cooperation. He preaches mostly to the choir, but with such a relentless litany of detailed stories of ruthless evil that he tends to raise the level of fury and radicalism wherever he speaks. Bully for that. But I don’t find him particularly credible or even interesting. Maybe it’s because I’m already convinced that the government is terrible.
