None of this has anything to do with Chomsky--either his linguistics or his politics? Are you pulling our leg?

You guys are intrigue me to get this. I am a terrible writer, but I do have interests in things like origins of words and etymologies.

We used Chomsky's "Grammar" as a textbook in one of my many Linguistics classes. It's a great read, assuming you have a similar passion for language as Noam & I do ;)

Thank you, Structure Theory. I would have created the group if you hadn't.

Simply to have a presence. Libertarianism and socialism are both words that have been twisted to drastically different meanings on the American political landscape.... it's time these words get reclaimed... hopefully the presence of that group will clue libertarians in to the fact that the philosophy they praise is not so much different than the socialism they claim to hate.

Yet another minuscule left group on Atheist Nexus in which there is no activity? To what end?

Created a group for left libertarians of the nomsky persuasion:

Since this is an atheist site, we should note this interview:

"The Humanist Interview: Noam Chomsky On Humanism, the Vulnerability of Secular Nationalism, and the Mother of All Book Plugs" by David Niose, The Humanist, vol. 67, no. 1, January/February 2007, pp. 20-25.

I tend to take Chomsky with at least a little grain of salt (his foreign policy take, that is -- obviously his linguistics work is unquestionable). His version of the development of computers is at least a little shady, as are his thoughts on some of the mechanics behind free market economics.

I've only read 'Hegemony or Survival'. Most of what I know of him has come via video lectures. Here's a pretty good one entitled 'The Militarization of Science and Space':
