When I see recent videos of Noam Chomsky I feel kinship for his apparent agreement with what I've noticed about how connection is hastening the evolution from superstition/belief to frank acknowledgement of truth/reality and hope that we will end poverty/hunger/war.
The "talk" part of the message seems to be on Obama's lips but I retain a vigilant skepticism and the persistent contention that politics/economics and nation-states/consumption aren't the path to the sort of ecstacy in dreams of connectedness. At any rate it gives me a sort of "rooting interest" in the electoral process, largely because he has much the same audience as Chomsky (and I, heh!) share.
