Happy Birthday Chomsky!!

It’s philosopher and linguist Noam Chomsky’s birthday today. He is 81 years old. I don’t need to explain who he is or his works. Instead, let’s just look at one of his famous quotes:

All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.
