Noam Chomsky

Our system works much differently and much more effectively [than the Communist system]. It's a privatized system of propaganda, including the media, journals of opinion and in general including the broad participation of the articulate intelligentsia, the educated part of the population. The more articulate element of those groups, the ones who have access to the media, including the intellectual journals, and who essentially control the educational apparatus, should properly be referred to as a class of 'commisars.' That's their essential function: to design, propagate and create a system of doctrines and beliefs which will undermine independent thought and prevent understanding and analysis of institutional structures and their functions.

freedmftr88: One of the things I like about Noam Chomsky

One of the things I like about Noam Chomsky was his answer regarding if nonviolent protest didn't work. His response was either people unite in peaceful protest or people would just need to kiss each other goodbye. What we was referring to was just how strong government imperialism was against the common people.
I just made a comment regarding perhaps a new direction in which peace can be achieved in the world.

freedmftr88: Anarcho-feudalism ?

I don't think I've ever heard of that . Was it something that he coined the phrase or is it an actual Anarchist School of Thought ? If so , I've never heard of it in the Anarchist FAQ ( )
Libertarian Socialist Rants :
( My personal two favorite resources by the way ;) )
