La crudité de ce discours, de cette pensée, est habituellement ensevelie sous le savoir-faire lénifiant des marchands de pommade, pardon, des communicants, et grâce à la complicité des blanchisseurs médiatiques officiels. ... Il dévoile la mondialisation comme elle est. Il est, pour ce faire, mille fois plus efficace que tous les films de Michael Moore. Thank you, the Grizz.The crudeness of the discourse, of this way of thinking, is usually buried in the soothing know-how of the ointment merchants, sorry, communicators, and thanks to the complicity of the official media launderers. ... [Taylor] reveals globalization as it is. He is a thousand times more efficient at this than all the films of Michael Moore. Thank you, the Grizz.
