My Question to Noam Chomsky
Karim is interviewing Noam Chomsky for Egypt Today and has tagged me and a couple of other bloggers to field our own questions (1 per blogger me thinks) to the "world's leading intellectual", as a bunch of british idiots have called him in a recent poll. Since I am not a big fan of hypocritical leftist intellectuals who say one thing and do another, I figured I would give him a question that I am 100% sure he will dodge. Here it is: How do you reconcile your public negative views on Oil/ Pharamceuticals/ Militray corporations- which you deem to be evil and deadly- with the fact that your own retirment plan stock portofolio is filled with investments in those same kind of corporations, whether directly or through investing in the TIAA-CREF stock fund, which makes you both an owner and a supporter of them? How does that work exactly? Fair question, no? Oh yeah, Thanks Karim for tapping me. Make sure he doesn't weasel his way out of answering that one, will ya? Please? Just can't wait!
