The Liberation of Sensibility - CounterPunch

The Liberation of Sensibility - CounterPunch | real utopias | Scoop.it

Is there any role for classic-humanist literature in the moral/spiritual outlook of 21st century socialists?  There certainly was for the leading 19th century socialist: Karl Marx constantly reread and studied such authors as Aeschylus, Shakespeare, and Balzac, and his writings are sprinkled with forceful quotations ranging from Homer to Jonathan Swift.  His successors also drew upon classic authors—such as Rousseau and Tolstoy—for inspiration and moral enlightenment.  And it was only after reading Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables, recalled the late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, that he became a socialist.

Michel Gondry Picks Noam Chomsky's Brain - Westword

Michel Gondry Picks Noam Chomsky's Brain - Westword | real utopias | Scoop.it

Superficially, the two men couldn’t be more different. Gondry is the impish romantic behindEternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; Chomsky is a professor emeritus at MIT who was voted (in a Prospect/Foreign Policy poll) the world’s top public intellectual. Yet Gondry was struck by the way both men view reality at a slant. Though Chomsky had already said yes to over 100 documentaries — he’s been in more movies than Elvis — he agreed to sit down for one more, the sprightly, brain-prickling Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?
