Chomsky is totally, utterly right.

A strange title, no? Over at Harry's Place a post from someone with a double first in philosophy (for Americans, think magna cum laude, you know, really bright young thing like Matt Yglesias) on Chomsky, giving us the startling news that Chomsky is actually right about something.
No, not that Amerikka is the fount of all evil, that the Jooooos run everything nor that McBushHitlerShrimpMonkey is leading us all towards Armageddon. Rather that Derrida and post-modernism are, how shall we put it, um, rubbish?

In contrast, no one seems to be able to explain to me why the latest post-this-and-that is (for the most part) other than truism, error, or gibberish, and I do not know how to proceed.

Go read the whole quote as it appears to be something written by a sane man, not an association I would normally make with our Noam.
