Chomsky revolutionized the discipline of linguistics. His linguistics work argues that the acquisition of language is part of the naturual or innate structure of the human brain. An anarchist and libertarian socialist, Chomsky first came to prominence in the political realm opposing the U.S. invasion of South Vietnam. Outspoken against all abuses of power, Chomsky is a particularly astute critic of U.S. foreign policy. Chomsky's analysis of the media illustrates the compliant nature of the information industries to the ideological obejctives and imperatives of governments and corporate elites.
Judged in terms of the power, range, novelty and influence of his thought, Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive.

Despite what PENDEJO says, Noam Chomsky is the true American's most valuable resource. The problem with dissent is that you are under much more pressure to produce proof of the true evils you see and know of, as opposed to being pro-conglomerate, which never needs to prove anything, and doesn't care if you don't believe them. Professor Chomsky has an encyclopedic knowledge of FACT, not spun reports, not U.S. media stories, but pure, straight-from-the-source facts. Dr. Chomsky and Dr. Howard Zinn are the most educated and eloquent real voices of dissent, and one would hardly be able to dismiss his truth if one were to actually read it. He provides proof of EVERYTHING he speaks of, and will not comment on a topic he knows nothing of. As of yet, no conservative, 'liberal', right-winger, or republican has been able to discredit anything he has said, nor have they been able to successfully contradict him.
Noam Chomsky gained infamy in the U.S. media in 1979-1980 when he said that a French author who denied the existence and validity of the Holocaust was allowed to publish his works.

one man trying his darndest to make a difference by putting up the best argument against the barrage of corporate propaganda you get through every media outlet in the usa today...

not including cspan and pbs and national public radio...

obviously very intelligent, he is vilified by all those who are afraid to engage him in a debate...

ive heard a several guys try to debate him, they always get very mad and reduce the argument to ad homynym (sp?) attacts...

his writing is a bit tough to understand for those not willing to put in an effort, but some things cannot be said in 5 second sound bites... and thats part of the problem with the USA's basic ignorance of what in the hell their government has been up to...

take a look at the Pentagon Papers, the history of the vietnam war, then see if you think it is relevant info to know, then ask yourself why the hel dont you learn about that stuff in history class???

if you wanna have a good idea whats going on in international geopolitics i highly recomend checking out what mr chomsky has to say...

A synonym for "know what I'm sayin," except a shorter, more ran-together version.
"Noam Chomsky man?"
"Oh, I know what you're Chomsky."
