Just a quick fix from a frequent lurker: there's no such thing as "Czechoslovakia" anymore, the Czech Republic and Slovakia are separate countries since 1993.

Re: the story about US bombings in 6 countries now: apparently Orwell was a Prophet: we must always be at war with Eurasia...

Speaking of Orwell, Chomsky has long talked about the "Orwell Problem," namely: how people can know so little even when the evidence is right there in front of them?

Too bad Chomsky's linguistics seem worse than useless in helping us explain this. However, his non-linguistics works about this are, in my opinion and ironically, another form of the Orwell Problem.

Really? _Manufacturing Consent_ is all bullshit? Do tell!
