Noam, Noam, Noam, I can understand why you are upset. But “the most dangerous organization in world history”? C’mon that’s hysterical – in both senses of the word.
Trump in many (many) ways is the anti-Chomsky, blowing holes right through the political correctness linguistic critique which was to a large degree pioneered by Noam Chomsky. Now the critique (or is it a facade) is falling apart right before the world’s eyes. It’s got to be difficult for the professor.*
However, the GOP ain’t the most dangerous organization in world history. (Chomsky knows this.) In many respects the Republicans are less “dangerous” than they have been at any time in my lifetime.
On Nov. 8, the most powerful country in world history, which will set its stamp on what comes next, had an election. The outcome placed total control of the government—executive, Congress, the Supreme Court—in the hands of the Republican Party, which has become the most dangerous organization in world history.
Apart from the last phrase, all of this is uncontroversial. The last phrase may seem outlandish, even outrageous. But is it? The facts suggest otherwise. The party is dedicated to racing as rapidly as possible to destruction of organized human life. There is no historical precedent for such a stand.
*We do not dismiss the thinking of Noam Chomsky completely. His view of the media on matters of war (that it is a crony lapdog most of the time) is pretty valid.
