Noam Chomsky on human creativity and work

Noam Chomsky on human creativity and work

(9:06) A common objection to a libertarian socialist society is that no one would bother to work. Is that true? Do people have to be driven to work.

What's the weather like on Chomsky's planet? After Libertarian Socialists, will he next be discussing negro Klansmen, conservative liberals, UKIP Liberal Democrats, Republican Democrats or boy girlscouts?

Libertarian socialism (sometimes called social anarchism ,[1][2] left-libertarianism [3][4] and socialist libertarianism [5]) is a group of political philosophies within the socialist movement that reject the view of socialism as state ownership or command of the means of production[6] within a more general criticism of the state form itself[7][8] as well as of wage labour relationships within the workplace.[9] Instead it emphasizes workers' self management of the workplace[10] and decentralized structures of political government[11] asserting that a society based on freedom and equality can be achieved through abolishing authoritarian institutions that control certain means of production and subordinate the majority to an owning class or political and economic elite.[12] Libertarian socialists generally place their hopes in decentralized means of direct democracy and federal or confederal associations[13] such as libertarian municipalism, citizens' assemblies, trade unions, and workers' councils.[14][15] All of this is generally done within a general call for libertarian[16] and voluntary human relationships[17] through the identification, criticism, and practical dismantling of illegitimate authority in all aspects of human life.[18][19][20][21][22] [23][24]

Past and present political philosophies and movements commonly described as libertarian socialist include anarchism (especially anarchist communism, anarchist collectivism, anarcho-syndicalism,[25] and mutualism[26]) as well as autonomism, communalism, participism, revolutionary syndicalism, and libertarian Marxist philosophies such as council communism and Luxemburgism;[27] as well as some versions of "utopian socialism"[28] and individualist anarchism.[29][30][31][32 ]

Let's see if I have this right: You post one link referring to "right-wing libertarianism." OK, fine. But that's my point: socialism is left, not right-wing... or are you saying the terms are either swapped or synonymous"? The second link was to political compass and I routinely point people there. Libertarians (e.g. Murray Rothbard, Ron Paul, Libertarian Party members (of which I am one)) wind up in the purple area to the lower right. Straight up liberals like Noam Chomsky, the Green Party, Alexis Tsipras, etc wind up in the green area to the lower left. "Libertarian socialist" is as meaningless as "left right." You have read, but you have not understood. You have also reverted to ad-hominem, but I'll let it slide.

i refuse to argue with imbciles like you because you don't have the mental capacity to understand how stupid you are and it's frustrating.

Instead, i'll resort to ad-homiFU*KYOU because it makes me feel good.

Now go roll arround in your ignorant filth.

you stupid FU*K.

I always wondered what Chomsky fans were like, how they react, how they "think," if they were rational, etc. Thanks for enlightening me. Noam should be so proud.
