: Did Chomsky say "Skinner advocates . . .gas ovens . . .blah, blah, blah"? No, he didn't. He said "there's nothing in Skinner's approach that's incompatible with a police state . . ."

What a slithering retreat.

Chomsky only mentioned Nazis and concentration camps and gas ovens while discussing Skinner and behaviorism throughout his 'review.' OF COURSE that doesn't MEAN Chomsky was comparing Skinner to the above metaphors, it was simply a COINCIDENCE.

Take responsibility for your statements or shut up.
