Instead of accepting what a great thinker Chomsky is, I would recommend anyone to read his works. My own view? He is a sophist. I suggest looking up what a sophist is. My opinion? Chomsky is far from the image presented in the editorial, which itself (the editorial) is an example of the elitism, hubris, and malicious judgementalism of the man.
