It is about people in this thread.
"Chatelet is well-known in France for his political pamphlet Vivre et penser comme des Porcs, De l'incitation à l'envie et à l'ennui dans les démocraties-marchés, Exils (To Live and Think Like Pigs, Envy and boredom in market- economy democracies) which was published in 1998. Vivre et penser comme des Porcs was a polemical essay in which he denounced liberalism which according to him its effectiveness relied on a triple alliance between the "tertiary" spheres of politics, economics and cybernetics, or communication technologies.
In a collection of his political writing titled Les Animaux malades (Sick Animals of Consensus), he rejected what he considered as a widespread human domestication process imposed by the New World Order. He called for a new philosophy to combat the disastrous effects of the decomposition of both the libertarian optimism and cynicism which in his opinion had become a pseudo-liberal sham."
I gave this book to le RJMan so you could be the second styleforumner I've convinced to read it.
