It's unlikely that this post will win me many friends or even garner much attention. However, writing it is the only way I know to supply the missing ingredient that could stop the worldwide slide into philistinism. But before I continue, allow me to explain that there is a tortured quality to Norma Chomsky's reasoning, a careful avoidance of obvious conclusions, and a painstaking circumnavigation of embarrassing facts. Don't make the mistake of thinking otherwise. Norma does, and that's why he once wrote a document whose sole purpose was to argue that analytic philosophism is a noble cause. This document was an endless sequence of intentional distortions, cynical manipulations of language, and outright lies. It served no purpose other than to get people thinking about how Norma has been telling everyone that education and open-mindedness are some kind of liability. I would like to remind Norma that false words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil. Most of Norma Chomsky's unprincipled protests are so self-contradictory, they're their own refutation.  :lol
