Forum Post: Help Noam Chomsky and this Graphic Artist

I'm an artist working on illustrating a graphic novel interview with Noam Chomsky about the Occupy movement (and a bunch of other stuff like the Spanish Civil War, Civil Rights, book banning...), and the writer and I are trying to raise enough money to produce the prodigious amount of pages (80-100!) we've expanded it to. We'd love it if you could help out by sharing the link periodically if that's something you would be willing to do. Thanks so much!

I think Chomsky would be your best source of funds. He is a very rich man.

Yet this man of the people, who is among the top 2 percent in the United States in net wealth, moved his family out of Cambridge, Massachusetts--hardly a working-class district to begin with--to the even more affluent wooded suburb of Lexington, where he was even less likely to mingle with blue-collar types. Moreover, he made the move around the time forced busing was being imposed on the Boston area; Lexington was exempt from the court order. Today, America's leading socialist owns a home worth over $850,000 and a vacation home in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, valued in excess of $1.2 million. Chomsky's home on the Cape is smack in the middle of a state park, which prevents any condos from going up nearby and obstructing his view. And don't look for oppressed minorities in either neighborhood. This self-described admirer of the Black Panthers, who says intellectuals must combat "all forms of racism" and complains that America "excludes" blacks from large parts of the country, owns a home in a town with a black population of 1.1 percent<<<

Have you asked him for the funding?

BTW Lexington is one of THe most racially isolated lily white megabucks towns I have ever seen. I was just there following the footsteps of the early Patriots and had dinner in Lexington. Wow, ground zero for monied families.
