For your consideration

An observation made by Noam Chomsky in his 1971 debate “Human Nature: Justice versus Power” with Michel Foucault1:

“I think that a democratic socialist libertarian United States would be more likely to give substantial aid to East Pakistani refugees than a system of centralised power which is basically operating in the interest of multinational corporations. And, you know, I think the same is true in a lot of other cases. But it seems to me that that principle, at least, deserves some thought.”
