Price of evolution

Sir, — I was instantly attracted by the title "The loneliness of Noam Chomsky" ( Aug. 24 ). Knowledge and wisdom can become a burden when one is confronted by loneliness, and the apathy of all those busy "succeeding" in our de-humanised, consumerist culture. Loneliness is the price one must pay for evolutionary emergence — the path treaded by enlightened humans like Chomsky and Arundhati Roy. They have unmasked the prison in which our neo-liberators have locked humanity.
