He Said That? 2/11/17

From Noam Chomsky (born 1928), American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, historian, social critic, and political activist, The Culture of Terrorism (1988):

There are few genuine conservatives within the U.S. political system, and it is a sign of the intellectual corruption of the age that the honorable term ‘conservatism’ can be appropriated to disguise the advocacy of a powerful, lawless, aggressive and violent state, a welfare state for the rich dedicated to a lunatic form of Keynesian economic intervention that enhances state and private power while mortgaging the country’s future.
