      in the overall general views of Hedges (a statist socialist more in the Marxist tradition) and Chomsky (non-statist, libertarian socialist in the Bakunin/Kropotkin tradition).

      Not sure what you meant by "close in position" and I may have misunderstood, so I'm making this comment to clarify differences between the two.

      iow.. not a problem, and not posting this to argue, just helping to better inform people. Both are great contributors to the discussion from the left.

      Chomsky would be closer to Graeber and other anarchists, in views.

      "The moment some people participating in an action feel they have more of a moral commitment to those who are threatening to attack them than they do to another activist, the game is over." -David Graeber
