Texte de la voix-off :

Have you ever dreamt of a world where
your daughter could go out alone at night?
A world without violence, drugs or theft.
A world where cars don’t kill, neighbors are not
a danger. A world from which pollution
has disappeared, where diseases are curable
and health a god-given right.
This world has a name:
You’ll know the pleasure of risk without danger.
You’ll enjoy the peace of an insured life.
Energies will be clean, disasters indemnified.
War will be surgical, weapons non-lethal,
damages collateral, fires friendly, terrorists
terrorizable. Responsibilities will be limited,
money demonetized, capital risk-free, property
guaranteed. Cars will be accident-proof,
trash cans bomb-proof, kids disease-free,
Sex will be safe. Food will be healthy, whiskey
non alcoholic, and junk food non-fattening.
Employment will be full, work disalienated,
exploitation guilty-free. Neurosis will be under
control, drives sublimated, deviancies
eradicated, normality guaranteed.
This world is made for you.
