The same charge might be hurled at Howard Zinn, who, in a Z Magazine
interview just last year, hailed the downfall of the USSR as a positive
thing, because, "it eliminated a falso model of socialism."
Chomsky is a kind of cross between Ralph Nader and a cruise-missile
liberal. He has no clear idea of what kind of society we should have, other
than it would be "non-corporate", and he favors UN, ie US humanitarian
intervention.Zinn is an old New Left patriot.
