A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.

The presumption of linguistic ignorance

If I watch a French or a Czech film, it usually has subtitles for whatever languages are spoke on screen. If a character speaks German or Spanish, the words are subtitled. Most American movies just put a caption [speaks German] … Continue reading
