As the most insistent purveyors of such models, the visual media are targeted relentlessly. At every turn, the ambient culture proclaims what Tavernier calls the ‘dictature de l’argent’ ( L’Appât press pamphlet). 5 Young people pursue fantasy ambitions by means of cartoon strategies adopted wholesale from simplistic entertainments.
