Rio Tinto: A Real-Life “Billy Jack” Villain
“Behind every great fortune,” Balzac wrote, “there is a crime.” That’s certainly true of the largest concentrations of wealth in the world today. The fortune of every billionaire, it’s safe to say, was amassed through some sort of crime. You don’t make that kind of money on the free market. And the holdings of every…

O estado precisa do crime
Na paródia do Saturday Night Live do filme Cidadão Kane, num dia de poucas notícias Charles Foster Kane afirma “Se não há notícias, vamos fabricar algumas” e começa a atirar aleatoriamente as pessoas da janela do escritório do jornal.
