At the end of a meal, a banker shows a friend that his beliefs and actions in anarchism have nothing to envy to those of bombers.
He deploys the treasures of insidious rhetoric in the service of his person and settles into provocative paradoxes.
If the anarchist banker enchants us with his reasoning by the absurd and a cheerless bad faith, this it is above all an incendiary tale against the "bourgeois society" (in other words: our society), its hypocrisies and its lies.
A denunciation of the power of money, which undermines from within the most precious good of man: freedom.
