Has anyone else read any of Chomsky's work? Since you haven't and don't grasp what Chomsky is doing, let me explain.
First, Chomsky's work centers on American Foreign policy and American Domestic policy. He is an analyst and critic of the way in which America conducts itself around the world. When pushed to postulate a utopian goal, he usually describes himself as an anarcho-syndicalist (look it up), but then qualifies it with pessimism about the current system and the effects that the system has had on people's perceptions of possibilities (see "Manufacturing Consent").
AT NO POINT has Chomsky ever advocated poverty. This guy is an MIT linguist, why would he want to be poor? This, in fact, is a common misperception of leftist and anarchist values. The reality is that leftists and anarchists advocate an END to poverty, not shared poverty. It is easily possible for us to raise the entire world to a middle-class level of existence, however, the middle-class in the US wrongly identifies with the 1% of the population who are incredibly rich and profit from the continuing poverty and war throughout the world. Trying to "make it" is NOT synonomous with being a "capitalist" (which describes how you relate to the means of production, nothing more) anymore than being anti-Imperialism is synonomous with being pro-poverty.
To this end, it is possible and likely to create an investment strategy that A)takes care of one's family (that bastard!) and B) doesn't invest in the industries responsible for the wholesale slaughter of people around the world. Does my Whole Foods stock make me a party to the invasions of Indian land in South Dakota, or the apartheid system in Israel? I really don't think so.
I've seen Chomsky speak and one of the themes that he spoke on was RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT. That is, investing in companies with good environmental and labor records who aren't trying to pave the rainforest to put in a US airbase. Oh my god! He's a hypocrite! He doesn't want to be poor! He got paid for the books he writes! He must be the primary shareholder in Lockheed-Martin!
