The concept of the common good is for [Noam] Chomsky is at the core of classical liberalism and of Enlightenment thinking, and one of its proponents (whose name is most often invoked to uphold contemporary capitalist practices—testament to our ignorance of his work) is Adam Smith. Like Aristotle, Smith understood that upholding the common good requires substantial intervention to assure lasting prosperity of the poor by distribution of public revenues. Common good also requires that we measure the effects of contemporary capitalist practices, including the division of labor, lest we fall prey to its nefarious effects; on this Smith said that the division of labor “will turn working people into objects as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human creature to be.” The antidote was government action, which should be initiated to overcome devastating market forces (113-114). -- Barsky, Robert F.
