Chomsky in the Age of Trump

Chomsky has a piece in The Nation. I'm not going to quote or allude to it because Chomsky to my mind is often too black and white, too Manichean.  

The title of the Chomsky piece, is "Noam Chomsky Diagnoses the Trump Era: The president has abetted the collapse of a decaying system; Chomsky explains how."

Decaying system, collapse.

These were the kinds of things victims of the Nazi regime often said about it, cheering themselves on, hoping that after Hitler something better would come.

Perhaps it did, though most of them, and many millions of others, weren't around to see it.

Chomsky may have mattered to me more once upon a time but now just bit of him is somewhat more than I need.
