As for the claims that Chomsky is a holocaust denier, they are totally and purposefully false. In fact, he is on record as saying that to even entertain the notion is to lose one's humanity. What he does support is the right to freedom of speech. Like most intellectuals (and civilized people in general), Chomsky supports an individual's right to voice his or her opinions. He has never supported the position that the holocaust never happened, but rather supports the rights of people to voice that claim. The difference between the two is critically important. In fact, when questioned about what he personally thinks of holocaust deniers, he always gives the same answer, "They're despicable."
This book is both fascinating and insightful. Required reading!!!
Chomsky's books tend to innundate with facts so much so that reading them becomes an invitation to migrane; almost every paragraph is footnoted. This book allows for a quicker read by offering careful interpretation by well respected intellectuals.
Chomsky makes outrageous claims in his books, just a few examples from Failed States:
o calls the US a failed state, a terrorist state even,
o claims that the US is a fruit genocide,
o says that every single US president could be indicted as a war criminal
The above is a prime example of Freedom Of Speech in action. In any other country Chomsky would have been locked up and possibly killed but in America he is unhindered in his criticism of the very cradle of democracy.
Now, if there were an Academic Bill of Rights enacted university students would be safer from such undesierable fruits of the freedom of speech as Mr. Chomsky's writings.
