Activist, Linguist and renowned interlectual Professor Noam Chomsky about wage slavery, illegitimacy of power, legitimate use of force and violance; and libertarian anarchism.
It's only a small collection of excerpts from the one hour long discussion with UC Berkeley's Harry Kreisler for the UCTV series "Conversations with History".
That particular episode was titled "Activism, Anarchism, and Power". The full discussion is also available here at YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ghoXQ...).
He makes important points IMHO that are hard, if not impossible to refute and worth thinking about.
Take away in short:
1. wage slavery = chattle slavery
2. power = illegitimate by assumption
3. use of force = only legitimate in rare instances
4. perfect society = liberal anarchy
