Imagine if Bernie won and made Chomsky the Secretary of State. The collective explosions of the minds of our 40%ers might cause a second big bang.

Speaking from personal experience, Professor Chomsky isn’t easily impressed. I’m grateful he doesn’t have a mean streak

But Professor, ain't it wrong to say just because 'e might be able to speak two languages, that him'll be into ladies and also into boys?

4:29 Chomsky: "One thing that [Steven Pinker] says is correct. I think that's about it. [audience laugher] Since the Enlightenment, there has been moral progress; in our own lifetimes, there has been moral progress. So, consider, for example, the status of women's rights today and in 1950 -- very different. The status of civil rights -- very different. Gay rights -- very different. That's progress, and it's been going on slowly since the Enlightenment. But that's a pretty brief period of human history. In fact, right at this same time have been the most murderous, destructive wars ever, and even seventy years ago, the creation by some of the smartest people in the world, of a device that may destroy us all.".

Being Neoliberal isn’t Centrism - it’s Right Wing deregulatory Capitalism, dismantlement of social programs, Corporate welfare, and worship of markets.

Even if what Steven Pinker says is true (that we're living in the most favorable of times) you have to ask how long this period in human history will last. The weight of evidence suggests that industrial civilization will be in serious decline in a few decades and that it could easily be mostly gone by the end of this century.

iphones (smart phones) are frills and have had a dubious impact? I love Chomsky but that is seriously out of touch.

Author — Paul Thronson

Chomsky jumps from an international decrease in extreme poverty to inequality and stagnation of the middle class in western countries. The latter is a point Pinker is arguably too dismissive of, but he really doesn’t have an answer to the core point. At least not here.

The second clip of Noam could be the forward to Pinker's new book about the Enlightenment. I don't see what the disagreement is between these guys.

I love Chomsky, but it's getting harder and harder to understand what he says. That microphone choice was very poor.
