There is a good interview at Alternet with Noam Chomsky which is almost a must-read. Noam Chomsky, Professor Emeritus at MIT and a political thinker who the NYT called “the most important intellectual in America,” is probably the most influential political influence in my own personal development as a politico. I cannot recommend his books enough. In this interview he goes over his own anarcho-syndicalist beliefs, his own theoretical model of “manufacturing consent,” and his advice for college students among other things. If you are smart at all you will read this interview and, immediately afterward, go buy at least 5 of Dr. Chomsky’s books.
