Jean Baudrillard – From America

The principle of achieved Utopia explains the absence and, moreover, the lack of need for metaphysics and the imaginary in American life. It gives Americans a perception of reality different from our own. The real is not connected with the impossible and no failure can throw it into question. What is thought in Europe becomes reality in America – everything that disappears in Europe reappears in San Francisco!”

Jean Baudrillard
America, p. 81
