Good old chumpsky; first encountered him when he was a linguist at MIT and I was studying linguistics at Wheaton. He had a novel approach, I thought, in that it was loosey-goosey psychobabble linguistics which I had no use for.
He was a crazed loon that even the left had no use for until Reagan became POTUS.
Then Chomsky became a useful tool in the progressives’ quest in damaging common sense and reason.
This devolved into “New Journalism.”
