“Sports is another crucial example of the indoctrination system…because it offers people something to pay attention to that’s of no importance. That keeps them from worrying about things that matter, things that impact their lives, and which they might just do something about.”
- Noam Chomsky

Interesting that so many hateful and even violent posts here are tolerated, but when those who deny demonstrable facts and question the deluded, the same close-minded fundamentalist people are the first to seek the "ignore" button, or for the mods to delete posts. Snowflakes indeed.

That’s kind of a depressing take by Chomsky. I bet he’s the life of the party.
One of his worst (well known) takes. More like "manufacturing intent" on that one.

BTW - People ****up intent in political discussion & theory so often it's almost laughable.
