Post Post subject: Noam Chomsky debates Richard Perle Reply with quote

...an' wipes the floor with him. Below is a link to audio files of the 2-hour (1 hour debate, 1 hour Q&A) 1988 debate. If you can handle the sometimes poor audio quality (mainly in the Q&A) and slow download, this is a gem.

As the description by the individual who posted it points out, it is basically a debate between fact, evidence, and logic on one hand, and rhetoric and personal attack on the other. Perle is an insulting, evasive, rhetorical snake that makes one physically ill at points. But in my opinion Chomsky more than prevails using fact and argument, though he obviously has the much harder job of arguing against "accepted truths" that require no evidence (nor, of course, do they possess any).

When I have downloaded it at home I will add it to my Emule shared folder and I would request that any of you (such as Suttonian) that use this or a similar program do likewise do likewise.
