Chomsky is way too long on criticism for how short he is on solutions

IMHO

I think you mean ideas instead of criticism.. not everyone claims to have the answers. Sometimes we just need to be made aware of things in a different perspective, I don't think Chomsky has ever set out to provide the answers.

Oh I understand he said what he meant, was pointing out he's misinterpreting ideas and perspective for criticism.

"ideas" and "perspective" are not mutually exclusive from criticism or solutions

Actually Decatur, I think you meant to say "criticism and/or solutions." It's ok. Don't let these dickheads shout you down. They're scared of opinions that threaten their world view.

You can criticize ideas and perspectives but you can't call an idea or perspective a criticism. He said Chomsky is too full of criticism and not enough solution, when in reality he's not really trying to give solutions, he's giving ideas and perspectives.

In the form of criticism

As I was saying

Oh I agree with that

He reminds me of Michael Ruppert. Doesn't have anything good to say about any development or change. Everything is always wrong, yet there are no real tangible solutions for anything other than complaining about it.

Funny, I think it is one of the meaningful sentiments we can make although it is now somewhat watered down. Possibly a backlash against the "divide and conquer" scheme our govt uses to keep us distracted. Supporting the troops is one of the few things we can all agree on and a reminder they are not the ones responsible for our policy. Chomsky has it completely backward.

re: Some Chomsky quotes that are rather interesting




is it my birthday? a thread of three of my favorite people, all slapping each other on the back...

quote:

when I try to convey that on this site people misunderstand or say that i'm being ridiculous.
it probably has something to do with your reading comprehension being pretty poor in some threads for whatever reason. for example, the exact thread you're talking about - first you misunderstood the hypothetical, then it took four pages to get you to admit that there's no way to actually prove what you believe.

as it happens i ran across another example for you - mountain climbing accident on K2 in 1953 - guy had pulmonary edema and they were trying to get him off the montain, one guy slipped pulling 4 others over the edge with him, all being held by the last guy. sick guy was at the bottom with them all hanging, cut the rope to help their chances. as far as i'm aware there was no mountain climbing self sacrifice propaganda in 1953.
