My Man, Noam


If you don't know who Noam Chomsky is, he is among the most quoted human beings in human history. This short documentary is a good introduction to him and his vast work. It pains me to see him ageing so much, I'd hoped to get to meet him one day.



Here, in a recent interview, Noam reveals he would never believe himself to be the kind of person who could have been politically successful, despite his credentials. 

In the video below he discusses one of his frequent topics - the history and abuses of the legal status of corporate personhood.
 


There's no question, most of us will never be able to appreciate all of his work in our lifetime. He is a rare true article, he is what he appears to be. He stands behind his convictions and treats his fiercest opponents and attacks on his integrity with patience and interest.
