Survivalism as the wild card of capitalism
« on: May 25, 2020, 04:15:10 am »

This  short  comic story on eating animal droppings really deserves to be translated into english

I found  it in a recently created french digital COMIC website dedicated to political humour and satire. Lots of very funny comics in there. All in french unfortunately.

This particular one  illustrates in the most vivid manner,  the potential of capitalism to harness human survival instinct to its own survival.

Are you from France?

The comic looks interesting.  I understood him saying his name is Bear Gryllis and he is going...somewhere.  Then the next one starts "Today, men are..." and I can't read the rest!  I took one year of French in high school.  I think the world is too English-focused and it's concerning.
