Social critic and peace activist Noam Chomsky is the most cited public intellectual of today.

His works in linguistics, philosophy and cognitive science have earned him the title the “father of modern linguistics”. His critical publications on mass media, politics and globalization have put him on the forefront of civil activism starting as anti-war activist in the 1960s and now as supporter of the Occupy movement.

  3. Pity Chomsky argues that the US does not conduct false flags against the American people, termed “conspiracy theories’ by the media. He maintains that the Warren Commission’s report was essentially true, that Oswald was the Lone Assassin, and defended the Bush administration against any involvement in the 9/11 false flag. There is overwhelming evidence that the three towers were destroyed by internal demolition.

    To the extent he denies the evidenced truth, he is a leftish gatekeeper for the American power system, despite his attacks on brutal American foreign policy.

    • I found this truly exemplary talk and Q/A highly informative. It is also worth pointing out that he is prepared to admit being wrong ~ as per the Occupy tactic for example. That is surely a truly distinguishing characteristic of a great mind, to accept error.

      I am not familiar with Chomsky’s reading of the Warren Commission that you allude to folktruther, but 9/11 is even more complex to summarize with any degree of coherent certainty and contextual precision. These questions will be exercising many inquiring minds for a long time to come,

      There are as yet so many unanswered conflicting accounts, but also multiple forensically unsubstantiated hypotheses. Only repeated review and competing or comparative analyses will produce convincing results. One of the most interesting lines of inquiry to date might arguably be the work of Dr Judy Wood.

      Do you have any thoughts about her research?
