edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Noam Chomsky:
List of objectives
  • Keep the article neutral. (Do not include irrelevant material that reflects disparagingly on Chomsky simply for the reason that it does so. In the same respect, do not delete relevant information that is disparaging simply because it is disparaging.)
  • Find "the last word" on some debates that have not been fully researched.
  • Try to include more images in the article if possible.
  • Attain good article status.


Update Chomsky's Marital Status[edit]

Noam Chomsky appeared on Democracy Now on March 3, 2015 and announced his recent marriage to Valeria Wasserman Chomsky. Please update the spouse section by adding Valeria Wasserman Chomsky (m. 2014) to Carole Chomsky (m. 1949–2008).

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done for now: This information and reference are already in the Personal life section of the article and there is no spouse parameter in the infobox used.

Filmography - The Power Principle[edit]

I've just added in the Filmography section The Power Principle (alternate link) documentary movie. Here's some links that can prove that the movie actually exist (I could not find Amazon or IMDB entries for it): [1] [2] Ark25  (talk) 19:30, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Opening Statement: A snowstorm of links[edit]

The high number of (pointless) links within the opening statement appear to be ugly, highly distracting and might help to lead people elsewhere. To correct this problem, can they not be deleted or greatly reduced? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.243.219.27 (talk) 18:24, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

I agree completely. The lede itself contains far too many links. Midnightblueowl (talk) 20:45, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

High Times[edit]

Chomsky gave an interview to the newspaper "High Times", noting that he is in favour of drugs and accusing his opponents of racism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dukawalla (talkcontribs) 14:44, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

See www.chomsky.info/interviews/20110729.htm — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dukawalla (talkcontribs) 14:50, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Not "in favour of drugs" (whatever that means) - in opposition to the so-called War on Drugs. And he doesn't accuse his opponents of racism, he argues that elements of the War on Drugs will have racially prejudiced consequences.
