as a retired professor, yes, he's out to academic pasture. but that doesn't stop people from wanting to hear him pontificate (and i choose the word deliberately) on all manner of current events. he's been wagging his finger at the US government for fifty years, and has had no discernible effect on radical contestation in that entire time. his personal practice is fully social democratic, as is his version of anarchism. he's done more to stultify people's understanding of anarchism than just about anyone else in the second half of the 20th century.
the only time i want to hear his name in public again is for his obituary.
