Noam Chomsky on Libertarian Socialism

As always, Professor Noam Chomsky has some interesting things to say on the nature of political definition, Anarcho-syndicalism, and its more general, more common identifier, Libertarian Socialism.  Here’s a video of an interview in Norway in 2011 where he discusses these issues.

One Response to Noam Chomsky on Libertarian Socialism

  1. gold account says:

    I bought this book because I was interested in learning about anarchism as well as Noam Chomsky. Before this book, I had only heard snippets of Chomsky’s critical views of the US and capitalist society in general. I was unaware of what type of society he did support. I also had recently heard several people talk about anarchism, which I had previously (and ignorantly) thought of as nothing more than chaos. This book was a good introduction to both the topic and the author. I learned what Mr. Chomsky stands for, rather than just what he stands against. He discusses anarchism and “libertarian socialism” as the ideal form of government to insure freedom and liberty, while being critical of capitalism and totalitarian socialism. He has certainly sparked my interest in anarchism and compelled me to investigate further. My only complaint is that the first half of the book seems more like an apologist essay for the communist North Vietnamese than anarchism. Nevertheless, the second half of the book was worth the purchase price.
