Leftist guru Noam Chomsky has come out against BDS and is hence merely a "leftist" Zionist. Yet anarchists still worship his teachings from linguistics (universal grammar nonsense) to his adoration for Anarchist Spain.
Above all others he is the single most influential intellectual who manipulates progressive forces into passivity or futile pointless activity. Chomsky tells his numb chumps to organize but if they do they will soon realize that organization implies hierarchy and that only certain people have a character suitable for effective leadership.
But once effective leadership is achieved - e.g. in BDS - Chomsky will only decry it as "authoritarian" or (in this particular case) "anti-Semitic". The point is that if OWS intends to break out of the intellectual straitjacket of modern Leftism (particularly Libertarian Socialism) it is going to have to come to terms with the fundamental question of significant human character differences - meaning that we have to find the best people to rule and dump the universal application of the anarchist damn-all proposition i.e. "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely".
The question remains undecided (and I cannot decide it for you as I do not live in the USA let alone NY): will OWS be run by Numb Chumps or will OWS admit that the leader principle (a.k.a. der Fuehrerprinzip!) finds a sound basis in human character differences that CANNOT AFFORD to be negated by ever-manipulable mass democratic opposition?
Dump the Chump? Yea or nay?
