In the post below I suggested to readers that they read Chomsky’s 1967 essay The Responsibility if Intellectuals. I realized, of course, that no one would read a 13,000 word essay, as it smacks of a homework assignment. We are not a reading culture. So I will capsulize the essay:
“It is the responsibility of intellectuals to speak the truth and to expose lies.”
If you know of any American intellectuals who are actually doing this here in our Empire of Lies, please alert your local authorities. The consequences of speaking truth in this land are severe, usually loss of job, sometimes jail, often enough death.
