Noam Chomsky on irrevocable trusts

I'd say the Deep Structure in here is Private Accounts that can be passed onto survivors makes sense,
When I challenged Chomsky about his trust, he suddenly started to sound very bourgeois: "I don't apologize for putting aside money for my children and grandchildren," he wrote in one e-mail. Chomsky offered no explanation for why he condemns others who are equally proud of their provision for their children and who try to protect their assets from Uncle Sam. (However, Chomsky did say that his tax shelter is OK because he and his family are "trying to help suffering people.")

I guess in the eyes of red millionaires, some comrades are more equal than others.
