The election glitch!!! ? The Lefty hardheadness ? a ridiculous anectodote : in South Florida anti Obama and then anti Clinton propaganda from Cuban and Venezuelan people accusing them both of being leftists . But there is no one to blame , for If Trump won its for the way he Looks ( speaks) like BIG DADY uncanny little hands --- some psyches are not quite yet ready to give THAT up

1. Chomsky's point is that we just blew our one chance to slightly preserve the biosphere at the current temperature level.

2. Chomsky's flexibility in being able to see why to vote for Clinton is an admirable anarchist trait, Loey.

Admirable flexibility and plasticity vs Hardheadness ; " selfish rigidity that undermines thought " ( Mary C Rawlison )- the fixed rigidity of brotherhoods

Some of us didn't want to see either one of the two main candidates win, and we voted for someone other than the two evils. Again, individual votes are insignificant. It's like Morton's discussion about individuals driving cars. Each individual makes no major contribution. Same with an individual's vote. Therefore, when someone votes, it's mostly about solidarity. And some of us on the left were unwilling to "stand" with Clinton. And, some of us wanted to vote FOR someone, not just against the other side. Blah, blah, blah…
I like Chomsky a lot, but what he says about this does not resonate with me at all. Nader is much better on this one.

Compromise always sounds so gentle and non-bullying an idea, but it depends who you do it with doesn't it? Of course the funny thing about compromise is that no matter how much of it is going on, everyone has a different idea about how much of it should be.
