[daily dose of imagery] noam chomsky @ yorkIt's not so much the picture of Noam Chomsky sitting under a sign that prompts this entry. If you go to this link, and read the comments, someone disparages Chomsky for his "pathetic idealism"!
I can accept that one's idealism can be mistaken, misdirected, out of touch with reality or even naive. But pathetic somehow implies that the very idea of idealism (so to speak) is wrong. Now that poor soul IS pathetic. I suspect they live in a narrow self imposed prison of perception, always pre-emptively acting selfishly on the mistaken assumption that that is how the world works.
