“Almost everybody spends most of their life living in a totalitarian system. It’s called having a job” – Noam Chomsky
I’m curious what this community thinks of Noam Chomsky describing traditional 9 to 5 employment as a totalitarian system where, unlike government that enforces laws with the penal system, corporations enforce rules by threatening destitution, and aren’t required to respect inalienable rights.
Is libertarianism specifically about personal liberty in opposition to government authority, or in opposition to authority in general? And if in general, is Chomsky’s comparison flawed?
