No one label adequately describes Noam Chomsky. He is an anarchist and a Laureate Professor known as "the father of modern linguistics." He is a staunch supporter of free speech and expression and an engaged human rights activist and radical scholar, one of the most quoted scholars of contemporary history, with over 150 books in his body of work. His determination to effect real change, make a difference, and construct a better society has not wavered. Chomsky has had a tremendous impact on language evolution discourse, and there are significant parallels between both the disciplines of music and language. Here are some videos of Chomsky with musicians and/or his impact on music as a practice.

I post when I post.
I am not a professional writer, musicologist, journalist, etc., nor do I possess any other academic title that would make me an authority on any topic. There will be typos and grammatical mistakes. However, sometimes I feel obligated to convey my thoughts regarding an issue, as I have many. This blog is where I attempt to figure things out and communicate my thoughts to the best of my ability. Thank you for reading!
I proudly support and adopt the We Have Voice Collective Code of Conduct.
If you enjoy my work, consider helping me spread the word about it. As an independent artist, I am eternally grateful when supporters take a few moments to share my work with their friends, family, and comrades through social media and word-of-mouth. Every little bit helps. Solidarity!
