NOAM CHOMSKY HAD AN INTERVIEW scheduled with Anand Giridharadas for The.Ink website. While each interview promises the potential of unique answers and even the possibility of new thoughts, depending on the interviewer, Chomsky prepared some notes to make certain he mentioned certain points. So, Noam called me and said, “Neal, here is what I am preparing to say in my interview with Anand Giridharadas: ‘The left position is you rarely support anyone. You vote against the worst. You keep the pressure and activism going.’ What do you think?”
And I said, “Noam, that’s what I have been telling anyone who will listen for fifty years.”
The interview was published on August 11, 2020, and titled “Noam Chomsky wants you to vote for Joe Biden and then haunt his dreams” and addresses “the pandemic, the election, the word Bernie Sanders needs to stop using, the Harper’s letter, the 1619 Project, patriotism, and the greatest social movement in U.S. history.”
