"Noam Chomsky, world-renowned public intellectual and MIT Professor emeritus, will discuss the reasoning behind his fearless lifelong questioning of the legitimacy of entrenched power. Chomsky's anarchism is distinctly optimistic and egalitarian. It is a living, evolving tradition, situated in a historical lineage, which emphasizes the power of collective, rather than individualist, action. This event is based on the topic of Professor Chomsky's new volume, On Anarchism, available from New Press."
Nathan Schneider, author of Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse, will offer a brief introduction and moderate the Q&A session with the audience.
Now I move the time to meet to 5 pm but even then you may not get into Wong Auditorium with only 291 seating capacity. Daniel said they streamed the previous Chomsky event to monitors in a space with seating just outside the auditorium last time. I myself try to get there 4pm to line up with eBook or music. It is hard to get there early especially for those who work 9-5. I will be in line with my meetup sign and hope to see you guys probably after the talk. I am planning post-Book talk meetup nearby.
