I bought both but won't get around to reading them until maybe next Summer.

I read a lot of Chomsky in late-high-school-and-early-into-university and my greatest takeaway from him was to always question those in positions of power: what they say, what they claim, what they decree.

 

Very clearly a genius.

 

However, I think Munger's comment that ideology can turn your brain a bit mushy is somewhat applicable to Chomsky. That radical side of Chomsky was somewhat appealing as a teenager but not anymore.

I probably should have just bought them in HB with unclipped DJ's & sat them on a shelf to be admired  ;)

 

2nd childhood or middle age crazies? (not the latter because I feel no desire to buy a Corvette...)
