Noam Chomsky lite. Moore is not a very good writer, and page after page of his heavy handed humour do not quicken the pulse of revolution's blood. He makes some good points, and perhaps his actually not very controversial views are the only radical views digestible for a mass audience. His books have also sold very well in translation, probably because they lose nothing in the process as they are so simplistic in politics and satire.
His responses to American imperialistic hegemony are crummy feel good inanities, like people should be able to buy the things they help to manufacture. Ho Hum Moore, become a proper socialist or stop whining.
Moore is the Lenin of our debased times.[_shared_elements/comment_on_this_review.htm]
