Product description


"American Candide makes fun of modern culture’s obsession with money and the calamities politics get us into. At the same time, it reminds us that too often US citizens sanction their actions and values with the over repeated attitude of Americans’ 'superiority.'" —John Tamarri, Pop Matters
