You’ve pretty much perp-walked yourself down a dark alley of the theoretical if you have to include the disclaimer “I, of course, consider rape and attempted rape as crimes,” Bernard Henri-Levy. Oh do you? That’s great.
But do keep reading his bizarre thoughts. Because after he mistakes New York tabloid front pages for “public opinion” (sure, he’s foreign, it’s confusing here) then he talks about “a kind of class justice in reverse.” Ooh, the ugly spectre of reverse classism! It’s incredible that this is France’s most famous thinker — he can barely think his way through a 900-word Daily Beast blog post.
