A philosopher who’s never taught the subject in any university,
a journalist who creates a cocktail mingling the true,
the possible, and the totally false,
a patch-work filmmaker,
a writer without a real literary oeuvre,
he is the icon of a media-driven society in which simple appearance weighs more than the substance of things.
BHL is thus first and foremost a great communicator, the PR man of the only product he really knows how to sell: himself.
Bernard-Henri Lévy (French pronunciation: [bɛʁnaʁd ɑ̃ʁi levi]; born November 5, 1948)
Lévy is proudly sephardic Jewish, and he has said that Jews ought to provide a unique Jewish moral voice in world society and world politics.
For some bizarre reason, Levy seems to be convinced that his beloved Jews-only state is an “exemplary democracy”.
