    It is very difficult not to sympathize with his answer to Israeli authorities, when they said to him his ideas were not liked by government here: "tell me of one government who likes them". He is so extreme that even if you dont agree, you have to recognize his singular existence. Now that is something, something opposed to the trends. If Chomsky is admired, I am not sure if 30% of his admirers do not know his writings. Singularity is not tolerated, no matter what color it has.
