There is anarchy in Lebanon but can we call it stateless? Not that statelessness would be possible or different.


Chomsky describes himself not as a Marxist, but as an anarchist, so that would explain his preference for a no-state solution. He probably doesn't want to see states anywhere in the world.


One other thing: I remember once when Chomsky was asked about an example of a successful multi-ethnic country. This was a long time ago so I don't remember the wording of the question exactly. I was shocked when he answered "Lebanon," as this was after the Lebanese civil war. Maybe he's just playing a massive joke on everyone. Or maybe he's just a little crazy.

I think he likes to be controversial. Of course he may also be just a little crazy.
