Re: <nettime> Umberto Eco: Not such wicked leaks


Beautiful post, thanks for the insights. Unlike our miserable diplomats, 
many here on the US left admire the Canadian public cultural production 
systems and resent the kind of arrogance that would push Fox and Disney 
and the like on the rest of the world. It's great to see their petty 
notion of an "inferiority complex" turned around backwards, revealing 
their own incapacity to even imagine other ways of articulating a 
national culture, an internal debate and a relation to others. I can 
only hope that this leak gives some credence to those of you who fight 
against the empire-builders in Canada itself, whose power has been all 
too obvious over the last decade...

all the best,

Brian
