I don't know if Noam Chomsky has ever been high. However, he could explain to you the twisted vision of capitalism and free-market economics that lie at the root of William Burroughs books. Still, he is one of the most insightful commentators extant on this commodity-focused culture. Chomsky, a notoriously dry and unexciting speaker, as usual, benefits from production, and Free Market Fantasies is a good listen. This classic Chomsky lecture may make you feel suspicious about global media. Also, you will feel guilty about mall shopping but hopefully not guilty about buying the CD. ~ Tom Schulte
