Comments

Once again i have started reading about people referring to Noam Chomskyʼs view of pornography, and i wanted to revisit the issue that i have talked about already. I am presenting my view of what is going on in relation to the whole debate, i am not supporting nor opposing Chomsky with this, but am trying to get people to think about what really is going on here.

Your comments on what i say here are welcome. Please feel free to use the comment facility on this site.

  • You are arguing on a non defined term, pornography. "What is pornography today?" Rule 34: If it exists, there is porn of it. That means everything that exists is porn to somebody. Rule 36: If it exists, someone has a fetish for it. No exceptions. That means that everything is enjoyed as pornography by someone. Thus everything is pornography! When you turn on the webcamera, shoot yourself, upload it and not get paid (this is done widely across internet) is this pornography, in chomsky's kind of way? I personally think that free porn services will destroy corporative pornography. Just for this reason we have to support such services!

  • "After all, he is a very successful capitalist himself, and invests in the military-industrial complex like most others." You are just making stuff up now. That is called lying. This reminds me of the conspiracy theorists who say that Wikileaks is actually the psyops operation. Of course, it doesn't hold any water, just like your assertions.

  • You missed the point. Chompsky hates "The Hustler" because of it's nudity and "humiliation" of the females involved, not for it's capitalism. (After all, he is a very successful capitalist himself, and invests in the military-industrial complex like most others.) Your speculation about Hustler employees... is PURE SPECULATION. I have heard a few of the women interviewed, and they would laugh in your face at your speculations. They say they happily choose to work there, they love sex, they love what they do. Either way, this kind of "coercion" (LOL!) -- that of paying people extremely well -- has absolutely no practical relevance to the very real coercion of very real statist-poverty -- ie. the "sweatshops" that were mentioned. Please, for the sake of those who are /actually/ suffering real violence, stop perpetuating this confusion. (And, incidentally, the solution to the sweatshop problem isn't "more alternatives", or "no money" -- it's STOPPING THE FUCKING EVIL VIOLENCE" :P.) (I might buy that Chomsky didn't know what 'The Hustler' was before the interview -- which is pretty retarded -- but he certainly DID know what it was when he made his comments.)

  • Nope, definitely cannot all agree to that. Hustler is a capitalist piece of shit journal. It cares about freedom of speech only to the point while it suits their business interests, just like Amazon cared about not censoring books only until right wing Christians started getting upset. I will look at what Huster says, because it is possible that something interesting comes from them, but i'm not going to trust them on anything, as their only goal is money. And if i would have to chose between Chomsky or Huster, i will chose the former any day. I believe that people who work for Huster are coerced, at very least as much as i am at the job i hold right now. Ask yourself if people would do exact same work if capitalist mode of production would disappear, that helps. I would still continue with my porn site (in fact it'd grow and strive in those conditions), while Hustler would wither away. Most (if not all) the people work there purely because it pays. I think that you are confusing supporting sex workers and supporting the capitalist model which labels them as such. As for Chomsky not knowing who 'Hustler' was, i believe him. I didn't know what 'National Inquirer' is until a friend of mine set me straight on it. So most of your criticism is completely off-point.

  • I really think you're giving him too much credit than he deserves here. I think we can agree he is still a smart man, with impressive analytical skills. Even if he didn't know what "The Hustler" was before the interview (even though he knows what "The Google" is), he sure as fuck knew what it was when he made those anti-porn (anti-Hustler) statements. I think we can all agree that everyone working for Hustler is happy and eager and in no way coerced. (Equating that to violent-statist-sweatshops is beyond repugnant and insulting.) I think we can all agree that he is indeed *intentionally blind*, at the very least regarding Hustler and western porn, if not sexuality in general. Your point about Palestine is irrelevant, since he seems well-versed and rational in those matters. With pornography, he *clearly* has no idea what he's talking about, but still magically feels competent to speak about it. That's irrational. The only thing he can rationally talk about is polite missionary sex with his wife. Or maybe not even that. Even regarding poverty-driven-prostitution (which has little-to-nothing to do with pornography), he can't say anything unless he actually knows something about prostitutes and sexuality -- which he almost certainly doesn't. It's absolutely no different than if I were a homophobe, pontificating that homosexuals are wrong and troubled, without any scientific knowledge of the nature of homosexuality or actual homosexuals. He's an ignorant bigot, the product of anti-sex statist brainwashing. Oh well. Nobody's perfect.

  • Nope, i do not agree. I think he has made a serious mistake, but it was a mistake made in an effort to support a just cause. Probably he should have been more careful with how he phrased his opposition, and maybe gone and researched the subject more, but making a mistake doesn't make one a bigot. Bigotry is conscious and intentional ignorance, Noam Chomsky never intentionally blinded oneself in this matter. Let's put it another way, he says that Palestine will never get the status of the separate state. That is his opinion, although many will disagree. This doesn't make him a hypocrite (as he says that this would be the logical reading of international laws), neither does it make him a bigot. It's a rational disagreement. It's the same here. Noam Chomsky has the full right to fight against what he perceives pornography to be. In fact it is quite possible (but not guaranteed) that if he'd see pornography that i am creating he'd say that it is not pornography in his definition; which would make it a question of different use of the word. Many people have jumped on the bandwagon of bashing Noam because they believe that they will seem more important if they will proclaim to be more radical than Professor Chomsky; but in fact most of those individuals haven't done shit for the radical movement. Anyhow, my disagreement is with the specific statement that Noam Chomsky has made, not with him as a person. I have complete respect for him as a radical analyst of current and historical events.

  • Well, you must agree that the dude is almost certainly clueless about the field (aka. ignorant), and his blind intolerance of other people's free-choices makes him a bigot, and hypocrite?

  • "The real issue, as you say, but I will reword :p, is that Chumpsky is perfectly free to be a bigot and a hypocrite and ignorant[...]" I would like to make it perfectly clear. I did *not* say such as thing.

    posted by: VolodyA! V Anarhist on 2011-02-04 06:08:14

  • The real issue, as you say, but I will reword :p, is that Chumpsky is perfectly free to be a bigot and a hypocrite and ignorant, but it's not cool. (When he made that absolutely absurd and non-sensical sweeping statement about such a vast field of expression, it was obviously from a place of ignorance (I'm sure he's never heard of your porn, nor of everything that is possible)) The truly vile thing is when he actually had the audacity to question *other people's* choices -- when he brought into doubt the voluntary choices of those who do porn, or work in sweatshops. That's when he crossed the line into blatant evil. He was a little sneaky in the way he worded it, but that was definitely the gist of his point.
