Chomsky-worship is an example of what I call the Big Daddy syndrome:
Secular humanists reject their religious and ethnic roots and then find the resulting freedom intolerable. They immediately look for some new personality driven belief system to which to enslave themselves. And so they have created a new Jehovah out of string and wax.

Again and again -- in personal accounts one sees the scenario of Melancholic, Bookish, Passive, Insecure Young Nebbish suddenly electrified and transfigured by the Grand Epiphany of Blindingly Brilliant Chomsky. This sappy psychodrama would be comic except for the fact that students who read Chomsky have been defrauded of a genuine understanding of history and political analysis
