Chirac Vs. America

The president of Our Oldest Enemy expresses his contempt for American culture in a new interview: “If we accept the thesis that is currently being developed by our American friends, there would soon be a single form of cultural expression. … [But if governments subsidize their cultural industries] American culture—I’m using the American example but there are others—it prevents American culture from spreading normally. Following that reasoning, all forms of cultural expression would be stifled to the sole benefit of American culture.”

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
