"Religion is the Opium of the People". Sounds familiar? For governments to exist, which are embodiments of the elites, the filthy rich, they need people to have a religion, so they can manipulate them and exploit their work more easily. It's such an obvious fact. In this regard, Chomsky's opinions as a linguist, or his opinion about any other matter, are totally eclipsed by his pursuit of social justice throughout the world. The same could be said about Stallman: there is a correlation between being free of any ties to "intellectual property" in software and being free of any ties to an ancient and idiotic superstition. A man has to be consistent in all aspects of his life. Hypocrisy is doing otherwise.
