Noam Chomsky Quote

Chomsky may not be the most quotable writer out there--his writing strikes me as utilitarian--but occasionally he produces a line of note, from World Orders Old and New, (New York: Columbia University Press), 1996, pg. 79:

'Secretary of State Dulles deplored the Communist "ability to get control of mass movements," "something we have no capacity to duplicate." "The poor people are the ones they appeal to and they have always wanted to plunder the rich"--the great problem of world history. Somehow, we find it hard to peddle our line, that the rich should plunder the poor, a public relations problem that no one has yet been clever enough to resolve.'
