I think it's a bad idea to suggest that a guy like F have
anything to do with a guy like C. In the first place Chomsky has his
objectives a little screwed up. He is a much better 'reactor' than
thinker. You don't need to look beyond Reflexive Water to see that.
Though most of the reading I've encountered concerning, or by Chomsky
commes from Z-mag and linguistics, his objective seems to be to confuse
issues and create dischord. Foucault is looking for answers in traces.
