OBEDIENT
“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum….”
― Noam Chomsky, The Common Good

      Do you know much Noam Chomsky? He sounds like a majorly interesting person to research x

        Whew, Chomsky, he’s a linguist and as such, he’s my enemy — you know, there’s this hostility between linguistics and literature scholars, me being in the latter camp. 😉 Now, seriously, I don’t know much about him besides his linguistic work, sorry…

          Oh dear lol! Re the enemy bit. Me being naive why would someone who studies the formation of language be at odds with someone who appreciates the written word? He did many things it seems and was cited one year as being the worlds most intellectual something or rather plus he tried to improve human rights the list seems pretty endless hehe – I didn’t write that well still trying to wake up hehe

            Heh, you put it very nicely! You almost made me feel ashamed now…What you say makes perfect sense, but the main idea is that the linguists complain that literature is esoteric and unscientific humbug, while the literature people complain that linguistics is no real research, just making lists of things that happen in the language, which is very uncreative and produces no original results. I hope no linguist will read this comment, or it would be war! 😆
