All,

	If you will notice the article is largely a paraphrasing of Chomsky. Even  
so Chomsky comes off well. The odd slice is that Chomsky has almost always  
avoided making suggestions about strategy, apparently the directive mode  
is something tries to avoid. It is hard to say how much of this article is  
Chomsky and much is imputed to him from is more usual analytical  
perspective. It is unfortunate that the "Survey of Contemprary  
Contributions to Progressive Strategy" did not include Chomsky's analysis  
as their starting point. By the apparent paraphrasing there seems to be  
literary strategy of credibility by association. It is also unfortunate  
that the "Survey..." avoids dealing with very basic issues such the  
various implemented definitions of 'progressive' which often are more more  
about window dressing than actual change or implementing democratic values  
or even expanding a discourse.
