Mind Floss is back. He's talking about Chomsky, and it ain't a linguistics post. Mind Floss understands leftist notions of autonomy and redistribution of wealth perfectly. The liberal idea is that everyone has a right to freedom (technically "autonomy"), freedom requires dough, and if you won't give me some dough you're depriving me of my freedom. Leftism (my term, Kekes says, "liberalism") is hopelessly confused. It's a non-starter. It's naive pacifism is, too. This is all coming to a head now. Leftism is imploding. The political landscape twenty years from now will be much better.
