Whither Anarchism, Or Who’s The Spook: Noam Chomsky Or James Corbett?

“Alternative” media producer and self-described anarchist James Corbet recently posted a video entitled “Meet Noam Chomsky, Academic Gatekeeper.”  And by gatekeeper he of course means undercover agent of some sort, although Corbett never does say for whom. I am writing about this for a few reasons, not the least is that there has been a debate within the Left about whether “conspiracy theories” serve our revolutionary purpose by exposing the lethal squalor at the heart of the capitalist order, or, on the other hand, deplete our energy and resources and avert our gaze from the proper course. Corbett is a “conspiracy theorist,” to use that awful phrase, and Chomsky is perhaps the most prominent conspiracy denier in the world. As you will read, I am an admirer of Chomsky, and I despise Corbett, but I am in agreement with the latter about the JFK assassination, and, to a lesser extent, the Federal Reserve, and have long been bewildered by Chomsky’s uncharacteristically peevish reluctance to yield to the ever-growing body of evidence, now monumental, insisting that he is wrong.

Bourgeois Propaganda Alert: Monetary Madness

Capitalism, as R. Palme Dutt observed in his Fascism and the Social Revolution, cannot offer a rational defense. Consequently, its adherents go to great lengths to deceive the public. It isn’t everyday, however, that we discover an effort as silly and desperate as this.

The world needs private bankers to produce excess currency to sop up all the commodities which capitalist societies overproduce so that we can continue to overconsume.

Had enough yet?
