Thank you Noam
He’s definitely pro-Russian.
I’m considering your point. Chomsky never seemed to be pro government or pro politician. He’s certainly anti war. I think he voiced a concern about where President Obama, a President Clinton and NATO might be leading the west. It’s a fair warning since any country getting pushed back will lash out.
If you listen to the interview again, he had never , not once, ever given a negative opinion of Russia and Putin.. the interviewer was trying to bait him, but he didn’t bite.
You are right. I’m not a blind-faither. I hope he isn’t pro-Russian or pro-Putin. I’ve always seen him as somewhat outside of pro or con. I may be wrong. (Certainly won’t be the first time)
The way the interview went I was getting kind of frustrated by the interviewer. He seemed to be baiting Chomsky.
I knew him first as a linguist. (Linguistics major, Univ of PA)
He would be an amazing professor. Sadly I’m not smart enough for his courses. I would have loved to sit in on a lecture or two.
