“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Chomsky - Indignant - Outraged - Engaged
There was a comment from a previous post made about a lie carried throughout the media on Chomsky and the Khmer Rouge.
Chomsky does not need my defense. If you watch the entire video, you will see why. You can start at around the 35 minute mark and that will take you through the Cambodian media lies. If you do not watch the entire video, don’t bother commenting about him. I will return the favor and not bother to comment either. Chomsky tells the truth and is a defender of free speech, regardless of the opinion of the speaker. That simplicity is a threat to mostly everyone.
