___________
"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." --Parodites

"Between this sky and the faces turned toward it there is nothing on which to hang a mythology, a literature, an ethic, or a religion—only stones, flesh, stars, and those truths the hand can touch." --Camus

I stopped listening when the interviewer inserted his own opinion and set the stage for how he wanted Noam to respond.  (That was at 1:14.)

I'm sure the rest is all bullshit.

I respect his work in linguistics, but him and Sam Harris are both incorrect, each on one side of the equation. The two embody Leftist in-fighting.

Have the gods set this ruling passion in my heart,
or does each man's furious passion become his god?

It is not opium which makes me work but its absence, and in order for me to feel its absence it must
from time to time be present.-- Antonin Artaud

I've had enough of extremists for a while. I'll just hang out here with the sane people.

I find it ironic how Chomsky turned into a supreme ranking manufacturer of consent.
The fractal usurps all.
