Noam Chomsky: The Kind of Anarchism I Believe in, and What's Wrong with Libertarians

Disclaimer: This is an article posted on AlterNet which I could tell had a lot of important things within it, but the message was held hostage in the worst formatting of a (presumably) recorded interview ever. I only took the time to format it myself because I really wanted to untangle what Chomsky had to say, and break the word-wall down into digestible paragraphs.

Why the Will is Not Free
