Noam Chomsky is professor emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and is one of the fathers of modern linguistics. Since the 1960s, he has become known more widely as a political dissident, an anarchist, and libertarian socialist.

Chomsky says, “The values that we hold are not absolute, they are always contingent…so choice is legitimate preserving life is legitimate and sometimes they run into conflict.”

And over the past month, the prominent academic has been fast at work helping to advance the Occupy agenda.”
