Noam Chomsky's Covid Dementia
By James Heddle
The following seems worth attention because it is an emblematic index of the deep level of pandemic madness to which our society has now descended.
The ninety year old icon of progressive orthodoxy, Noam Chomsky - who famously co-authored the classic Manufacturing Consent with the late Ed Herman - has now figured out a new way to manufacture consent: Lock dissenters in their homes.
Chomsky revealed his Covid feet of clay in several podcasts at FreeWorld.TV's Primo Radical and other outlets. (See links below.) He believes 'Nobody ever questioned' mandated vaccines before what he views as the present 'societal collapse.' He's in favor of masking and injecting kids, and of inoculation and testing mandates imposed by employers.
He likens refusing 'the vaccine' [ no mention that there are four brands in use ] to refusing to obey traffic lights, thereby demonstrating his complete ignorance of the widely reported adverse after-effects of gene-altering, experimental injections around the world - especially fully-vaccinated Israel - and the recent disclosures of their previously unacknowledged contents of nano-lipid gels, metallic nano-particles and other unexplained contaminants.
He apparently has no awareness of the overarching socio-economic-geopolitical meta-context in which the Covid Coup, total surveillance society, social credit scoring system, Transhumanist, Bio-digital Convergence, Great Reset, and central bank digital currencies agendas are being rolled out.
It looks like the old bromide, 'Scratch a lettist and you find an authoritarian' may have some validity.
Chomsky seems so accustomed to being considered the go-to authority-on-everything 'progressive,' he confidently opines dogmatically on a topic of which he clearly knows nothing but the official hype. He equates forcibly isolating informed dissenters in house arrest with the imprisonment of criminals. He believes hospitals are overwhelmed with unvaccinated Covid patients and that health care workers are resigning in droves because of the overload stress, not to avoid injection mandates. He claimes the global south is 'begging' to be injected.
No, contrary to hyperventilator Alex Jones' spin, he did not say, "Lock 'em up and let 'em starve!"
But the facts that, a man regarded for decades around the world as one of America's most celebrated public intellectuals, willingly and vehemently espoused the views transcribed below on camera to outlets apparently associated with Alex Jones, and that Jones is widely bloviating about it, does not alter the alarming fact that Chomsky actually said what he said.
Some may say, 'Oh, he's just a confused old man. Let it pass.' The problem with that is, his status as a respected public intellectual will lead many to take his endorsement of the official narrative as a final, definitive confirmation of its validity. A possibly fatal conclusion that must be countered.
I wonder if any of Noam's adoring fans will find his statements as alarming and disappointing as I do. It reminds me of how many other commentators we've recently had to cross off our roster of Trusted Information Sources.
Here's what he did have to say in a couple of clips: I transcribed them carefully to make sure of quoting him exactly.
"People who refuse to get vaccines - I think the right response to them is not to force them to, but rather to insist that they be isolated. If people decide, 'I am willing to be a danger to the community by refusing the vaccine,' they should then also say, 'well I have the decency to isolate myself. I don't want the vaccine, but I don't have the right to run around harming people.' That should be a convention."
"Ah, when you talk about people having the freedom to separate if they...they don't want to abide by the vaccine mandate, how do you think this would practically play out?
"Same way if they don't want to accept traffic rules. If people say, 'It's an attack on my liberty to make me stop at a red light - government overreach. I don't want the state to have power over my private life.' Then such people have to be, they should have the decency to remove themselves from the community. If they refuse to do that, measures have to be taken to safeguard the community from them. Then comes the practical question that you asked, 'How can we then get food to them?' Well, that's actually their problem. Of course, if they really become destitute, then you have to move in with some measure to secure their survival, just like you do with people in jail, for example. But that’s really not the issue. The issue is, if people say 'I wanna be a killer, I don’t wanna stop at a red light,' fine, go somewhere else where you’re not endangering the community. And since you treasure your liberty so much, find a way to protect you, secure it for yourself.”
