Fountainhead turned out to be better than I thought when I read it.

i just started reading "a farewell to arms" by hemingway... a friend of mine told me that when i will have finished this book, i will want to cry and quit my job immediately... is that true?
but the guy who said that is actually full of shit so for all i know he might have said that about just any book he liked, without it meaning something in particular...

If you want to read something depraved but mainstream you can't go wrong with Palahniuk. Other then his short story "Guts", I would read "Invisible Monsters", probobly his most depraved book.

I've only once read something that was so good/sad it made me want to die, which was a frightening thought at the time, but looking back on it, I'm just so overwhelmed by the fact that someone's writing was so real to me that I was able to feel that way at all. So, hooray for talent.

Chomsky is too adament in his own arguments, and has a tendency to put motives where there may only be machination, he also denied the Khmer Rouge Genocide was occuring, and more recently that there was no Genocide in going on in Serbia before the NATO bombing.

But his books have a lot of information in them, and he does point out some pretty blaring hypocrisys, a lot of what he says is inarguable despite the contexts of his arguments. He's probably best used as a stepping stone into issues than as an authority of them. Fateful Triangle his account of the Israel/Palestine conflict is one of his better ones (although its long and dense)

How is he a self denying hypocrite?

For Political books I'd recommend - depending on your interests


Crimes Against Humanity - Geoffrey Robertson (one of the best books about the international human rights structures, it's critical but only of their unfulfilled potential).

What Is Al Quada - Jason Burke (calm lucid analysis)

One No Many Yesses - Paul Kingsnorth (pretty inspiring account of the myriad Social Movements internationally umbrella'd together as anti globalisation movement)

farewell to arms is great and beautiful but my favorite of his is "a moveable feast". oh man. that book... you'll forever be discontent with your life after it.

Plan on wading into Atlas Shrugged tonight. Hopefully it'll catch my interest quick, or I might have to put it down for some Dostoyevsky.

chomsky's work in linguistics is pure genius; unlike french wankers, his work has been corroborated by solid scientific evidence.

chomsky on politics is another story. feel free to agree/disagree, it's a matter of opinion.

the thing with this guy is that he's too smart for the rest of us-- i've seen him live, by the way, and the lights went off for a second, and i could swear he was glowing in the dark. i suspect he's an alien, or at least a genetically engineered mutant.

gross.

cut the bullcrap & read nietzsche.

chomsky himself is rather abstruse; i recommend steve pinkert's "the language instinct" as an intro to chomskian linguistics (& the amazing discoveries it's spawned)

Right now I'm listening to a Chomsky lecture on language.
