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.
