It’s interesting to see the tradition in which the people you refer to [those that call question Chomsky’s loyalities] choose to place themselves. The idea of leaving America because one opposes state policy is another reflection of deep totalitarian commitments. Solzhenitsyn, for example, was forced to leave Russia, against his will, by people with beliefs very much like those you are quoting.
