Occupation Through Capitalism In The Eyes Of A Childhood Book
It is strange how sometimes memories of my childhood books seem so relevant to our current life.
Looking around me to people's lifestyles, attitudes towards life and everything else happening around us in Egypt or any Arab country, I can not help but remember the comic book "Obelix & Co." which is part of my My Childhood Reading Material .
The book's main focus is on the attempts by the Gaul-occupying Romans to corrupt the one remaining village that still holds out against them by instilling capitalism.
It shows how the occupation used money and trade to corrupt the last holding village in Gaul (France).
Do you dig me?.... Weslet?
Mood: Nostalgic and sinking in deep thoughts...hmm
