“The history of the twentieth century was dominated by the struggle against totalitarian systems of state power. The twenty-first will no doubt be marked by a struggle to curtail excessive corporate power.”
Eric Schlosser, Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal

“The medical literature on the causes of food poisoning is full of euphemisms and dry scientific terms: coliform levels, aerobic plate counts, sorbitol, MacConkey agar, and so on. Behind them lies a simple explanation for why eating a hamburger can now make you seriously ill: There is shit in the meat.”
Eric Schlosser, Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal

“Did somebody say McUnion? [...] Not if they want to keep their McJob.”
