Just done with my minutes on the topic of Chomsky’s Recursion Fallacy (in Chinese).

M: String all your related blogs on NLP and linguistics, you will end up with an excellent book for graduate students, something like "Ruminations on NLP".

Attempts have already been made to that effect.   Some key points have been repeated argued from numerous perspectives despite the redundancy involved.  The human memory is extremely poor, so voice can hardly carry far without certain redundancy.  Here is the collection of all my NLP-related blogs with its Foreword and Content, mostly in Chinese and some in English, touching on almost all aspects of this specialized field of study for Natural Language Processing:

[Foreword]    For 30 years I have devoted myself to the cause of natural language processing (NLP), the objective of which is to strive for exchange of ideas, freedom of information flow, common language of humankind and equality among nations. The experience of these 30 years has convinced me that to obtain this goal, the young scholars must be enlightened and science be popularized, so that we can join the efforts to build the Tower of Babel.  For this, I have never stopped writing, campaigning for NLP, hence this collection of my NLP-related blogs in sciencenet.cn. The processing has not yet been successfully completed. Let all our fellow colleagues, linguists and statisticians alike, join hands to carry NLP to the end.

[Topics Involved]  1. On NLP architecture and methodology; 2. On NLP analysis (parsing); 3. On NLP extraction;  4. On NLP mining;  5.  On NLP applications;  6.  On Chinese NLP;  7. On NLP mining of social media big data for public opinions and sentiments;  8.  Anecdotes about NLP

In fact, Karl Marx has this habit too, repeating himself, as if he were grandparent teaching grandchildren.   Still remember the days when I was young studying Marx’s "Das Kapital" as thick as bricks.  I was soon to find that the same argument can be so repeatedly presented from different angles.  Honestly, how else could his voice be heard and understood?

Marx's repeated teachings led to the communist revolutions in the 20th century, sweeping through half the globe, affecting two-thirds of humanity, over half a century, at the expense of countless people’s lives, and they also awakened countless people from the communist’s rose dream.

A: @wei, if not for communist campaign, there would be no today's social programs in Europe and North America.

You are probably right.  But the sacrifice seems too much.  Should have been a way to build a society combining capitalism and socialism, like what we have today in most modern countries, including China (which is practicing so-called socialist commodity economy).  

Among the five communist giants, Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao, Marx and Engels are theorists, hence immune to liability of any kind by nature: there are no sins in thoughts of any thinkers.  However, the other three dictators implementing communist programs cannot be exempted from the responsibility for the communist tragedies in the mankind, with loss of millions of lives of the innocent.

M:  Regardless of how much sacrifice was involves, it is most unfair in this: the sacrifice and the adversary are not the same group of people.  Nothing in the world is most inequitable than the practice of “killing chickens to warn monkeys”.   It may be ok to kill monkeys to warn monkeys, why should helpless innocent chickens be sacrificed and, worst of all, once it happens, they are killed a lot.
