Noam Chomsky in Forbes Magazine!
If for no other reason than the I would consider it about as likely as the current Whitehouse adopting a raft of measure to curb global warming, starting with reduced dependence oil, have a read of Noam Chomsky, wearing his professional, linguist hat, in Forbes magazine, On the spontaneous invention of language. Chomsky is doubtless one of the finest minds of the last century, whose insights in linguistics have impacted everything from child psychology to the design of compilers and programming languages, but whose wider fame rests in his decades long rational critique of western, and specifically U.S. foreign policy.
If you woke up in 500 years time, I'd be willign to bet his would be one of the few names from this last century still in common currency.
