33. To be clear, I'm not very interested when he just gives his opinion without supporting argument

but when he makes the effort to put his evidence together in a logical framework it has often seemed to me that he is providing a useful and interesting counterpoint to narratives widely and uncritically accepted narratives

And I'd say the same about anyone who merely states opinions resembling or echoing Chomsky's opinions, without bothering to argue the case cogently, based on facts: in such cases, I'll have to agree with you that it's just one person with an opinion
