Olavo de Carvalho's Open Letter to America

Jeff Nyquist has an interview with Olavo de Carvalho, in which he quotes the Brazilian philosopher's open letter to Americans
Any anti-American lie — even absurd — is taken immediately for granted, as pure truth. Any pro-American word I write is immediately explained as the deed of a professional liar "sponsored by Wall Street". … Hundreds of powerful non-governmental organizations have millions of dollars (even from the Ford Foundation) to spend in anti-American propaganda, but the Brazilian journalist who fights against them, with his own personal resources, with [no support, American or local], is accused of being "sponsored by Wall Street".
Reminder: From Brazil, More Evidence of the Left's Fight Against the Powerful, For Democracy and Objectivity, Against the Suppression of Free Speech, and For All Voices to Be Counted and Heard (not to mention the struggle against recurrent witchhunts that characterize America and the right so well…)
