This excerpt is from the 2011 Noam Chomsky's UCL Rickman Godlee Lecture. The topic in this excerpt is extremely prescient in light of the debate I had regarding the "Teabagger Violence Mars Tax Day Rally" video post.

It might feel good to show-up with a two person army at a Tea Bagger event with a megaphone and yell at them about being corporate shills but it does NOT accomplish anything positive or progressive.

If you don't like the way I put it in the debate then maybe you can appreciate the same sentiment from world renowned intellectual, Noam Chomsky.

Sincerely, HolyCity2012
