Chomsky and William Buckley

I found this interesting video earlier this week.

While one may come to a different deduction, it’s usually difficult to disagree with the metrics and parameters Chomsky uses to analyze history and society. But in the following video, Buckley seems to have little interest in earnest debate. He uses some of his characteristically esoteric words and tries to muddy the argument with aberrations.

In the past, I found Buckley to be witty and engaging. Here, though, he is disrespectful and acts like a common asshole (and imperialist).
