Appendix: James Donald and Noam Chomsky

This article has been added as an appendix to James' nonsense on Spain in order to get a better grasp of his technique and to better judge the reliability of his attacks on Spanish anarchism. For, as well as wilfully distorting the history of Spain and the activities of Spanish Anarchists, it should be noted that James Donald has done the same to Noam Chomsky.

In fact, it is no exaggeration that his hatred of Chomsky is pathological, as can be seen from Dan Clore's masterful exposure of his nonsense Contortions at First Hand -- James Donald vs Noam Chomsky.

The essay focuses, in the main, on Donald trying to prove that Chomsky somehow supported Pol Pot (people interested in this issue should read the 1985 essay The Chorus and Cassandra by Christopher Hitchens). The original version of Core's essay can be found here

Posting comments

 Like most sites we have a major problem with bots trying to post spam into the comments section.  While looking for a better solution we are reduced to only on turning on the ability to anonymously comment for brief periods around the posting of new articles.  But if you are a regular visitor you can comment at any time by creating an account on the site and logging in before posting. But the Spammers also set up accounts so to reduce the workload of deleting those we only turn on the ability to create accounts for brief periods which we announce on our Twitter & Facebook accounts so follow those to hear when we have that turned on.  We do want you to be able to engage with us via the comments and we are very sorry for the fact that we can't find a better way of dealing with spam.
