Subject: Hop: Chomsky
A graduate student, I am teaching first-year composition this summer.
I have assigned Noam Chomsky's Year 501: The Conquest Continues.
Some ten years ago, I became radicalized reading his Towards a New Cold

limits, and its complex relationship to Marx's critique? I would also be
very interested in any comments about the propaganda model which Chomsky
has developed with Edward Herman.
I have not been able to find any substantial critiques of Year 501 from the
I hope that no one minds this digression from the many interesting
conversations now going on (and which I have been following). At least
this message is a bit shorter than my usual fare.
