davebloom asked: I'm no expert on libertarianism, but the Wiki entry has quotes from U.K. anarchist Colin Ward and Cuban anarchist Frank Fernandez that agree with Chomsky, so I don't think it's just Chomsky's POV. I also wouldn't doubt that the current corporate-friendly U.S. interpretation of the term has influenced how the word's now used worldwide nor be surprised to find that the change had as much to do with the U.K. as the U.S. in the 80s. But there's a long tradition of left libertarianism to consider.

In re.
