    You're utterly wrong. Chomsky is not a mouth, he represents a concept, the concept of criticising governments which act in the interest of a few while marginilizing the rest. The mistake is in blindly accepting what Chomsky says, he makes mistakes like all people, but in saying that Chomsky is irrelevant, you are advocating the blind acceptance of what goverments do. In effect, you are claiming that all humans, Chomsky included, are prone to making mistakes, but not the humans who make up governments, they are to be trusted and obeyed without hesitation. This means, that what you claim to be irrelevant is the very notion of being critical of the actions of governments, even when their actions are detrimental to the state and to people beyond the layers which the state protects. When Chomsky becomes irrelevant, democracy becomes a token of the pursuit unrestrained self-interest and the 'delegitimisation' of the rights of those who think differently. As in Iran or North Korea for example.
