Аврам Ноам Хомский — американский лингвист, политический публицист, философ и теоретик. Профессор лингвистики Массачусетского технологического института, автор классификации формальных языков, называемой иерархией Хомского. Его работы о порождающих грамматиках внесли значительный вклад в упадок бихевиоризма и содействовали развитию когнитивных наук. Помимо лингвистических работ, Хомский широко известен своими радикально-левыми политическими взглядами, а также критикой внешней политики правительства США. Сам Хомский называет себя либертарным социалистом и сторонником анархо-синдикализма.

«Нью-Йорк таймс Бук Ревью» однажды написала: «Если судить по энергии, размаху, новизне и влиянию его идей, Ноам Хомский — возможно, самый важный из живущих сегодня интеллектуалов» . По данным «Arts and Humanities Citation Index», между 1980 и 1992 годами Хомский был самым цитируемым из живущих учёных и восьмым по частоте использования источником для цитат вообще.

„Iraq was responsible for terrible crimes in Kuwait, with several thousand killed and many tortured. But that is not war; rather, state terrorism, of the kind familiar among U.S. clients. The second phase of the conflict began with the U.S.-U.K. attack“

— Noam Chomsky
Context: The crisis began with the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait a year ago. There was some fighting, leaving hundreds killed according to Human Rights groups. That hardly qualifies as war. Rather, in terms of crimes against peace and against humanity, it falls roughly into the category of the Turkish invasion of northern Cyprus, Israel's invasion of Lebanon in 1978, and the U. S. invasion of Panama. In these terms it falls well short of Israel's 1982 invasion of Lebanon, and cannot remotely be compared with the near-genocidal Indonesian invasion and annexation of East Timor, to mention only two cases of aggression that are still in progress, with continuing atrocities and with the crucial support of those who most passionately professed their outrage over Iraq's aggression. During the subsequent months, Iraq was responsible for terrible crimes in Kuwait, with several thousand killed and many tortured. But that is not war; rather, state terrorism, of the kind familiar among U. S. clients. The second phase of the conflict began with the U. S.-U. K. attack of January 15 (with marginal participation of others). This was slaughter http://www.hrw.org/reports/1991/gulfwar/index.htm, not war. Z Magazine, August 31, 1991 http://www.zmag.org/chomsky/articles/z9110-aftermath.html.

„I just compared that with standard Leninist views on vanguard parties, which are about the same. About the only difference is that McNamara brought God in“

— Noam Chomsky
Context: I compared some passages http://www.zmag.org/chomsky/other/intellectuals-state.html of articles of [Robert McNamara] in the late 1960s, speeches, on management and the necessity of management, how a well-managed society controlled from above was the ultimate in freedom. The reason is if you have really good management and everything's under control and people are told what to do, under those conditions, he said, man can maximize his potential. I just compared that with standard Leninist views on vanguard parties, which are about the same. About the only difference is that McNamara brought God in, and I suppose Lenin didn't bring God in. He brought Marx in.

„What I find terrifying is the detachment and equanimity with which we view and discuss an unbearable tragedy.“

— Noam Chomsky
Context: After the first International Days of Protest in October, 1965, Senator Mansfield criticized the "sense of utter irresponsibility" shown by the demonstrators. He had nothing to say then, nor has he since, about the "sense of utter irresponsibility" shown by Senator Mansfield and others who stand by quietly and vote appropriations as the cities and villages of North Vietnam are demolished, as millions of refugees in the South are driven from their homes by American bombardment. He has nothing to say about the moral standards or the respect for international law of those who have permitted this tragedy. I speak of Senator Mansfield precisely because he is not a breast-beating superpatriot who wants America to rule the world, but is rather an American intellectual in the best sense, a scholarly and reasonable man -- the kind of man who is the terror of our age. Perhaps this is merely a personal reaction, but when I look at what is happening to our country, what I find most terrifying is not Curtis LeMay, with his cheerful suggestion that we bomb everybody back into the stone age, but rather the calm disquisitions of the political scientists on just how much force will be necessary to achieve our ends, or just what form of government will be acceptable to us in Vietnam. What I find terrifying is the detachment and equanimity with which we view and discuss an unbearable tragedy. We all know that if Russia or China were guilty of what we have done in Vietnam, we would be exploding with moral indignation at these monstrous crimes.
