Hmm.. Okay, I'll agree. He's an exceptionally intelligent man. He's well spoken, well educated and definitely has the power to get his point
Similarly Karl Marx was a genius and Communism, on paper, is by far the greatest system I've ever seen devised by man.
Both...were or are downright visionary. Unfortunately, both have that genius and vision in the world of figures, estimates, reports and proposals. In
short, the world of paper. These grand visionary types just don't work well in the real world of real consequence and human nature.
So.. Chomsky's important as are Cloward and Piven or even Mao's little red book. All in an educational way, but nothing I'd ever want to see again
applied to real world problems. Academics are like that. All ideas, no sense of consequence outside the strictly predictable they see from their perch
in an office or class room, IMO.
