Dot connectors.

 Can't remember when I first came across Chomsky's "Manufacturing Consent" .. (1998 maybe ?) but I remember it as one of those "Morpheus moments"

where someone clarifies a subject that's been nagging at you for a while and gives you that dopamine rush of "aha ! of course"..

 Somehow I managed to miss some of other stuff, and stumbled across these two videos on youtube today..

 1) Chomsky on Peak oil 

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_7ye0xAR6U&feature=related

 

 2) Chomsky on bailouts and banking.

 

 both from... err..  1998 

 So, I think it's safe to place him in the pantheon of esteemed dot-connecters.. he's a very cunning linguist !  ;-)

And I would imagine a master debater

Re: Dot connectors.

My most recent "dot connector" is definitely Derrick Jensen.  Here's his piece called "Angelina Jolie Moments"

Jensen is brilliant.  I just finished "The Language of Make Believe" (actually got it from my local library!) and now moving on to "A Language Older than Words." 

Cheers!
