Ralph Nader's most modern paintings of the mind's eye, Animal Envy, is a delusion in regards to the types of intelligences which are throughout us in different animals. What could animals inform us—about themselves, approximately us—if there have been a standard language between all animal species? A bracingly basic thought, one who has been used earlier than in books like George Orwell's Animal Farm and E. B. White's Charlotte's Web between others, yet by no means like this. In Animal Envy, Ralph Nader proposes, relatively plausibly, programmer has created a "digital translation" app wherein animals of other species, from bugs to whales, can communicate to each other, and during a "hyper-advanced converter" those animals can then additionally converse, either jointly and separately, to people. it truly is determined that there'll be an international meeting. will probably be known as "The nice Talkout." people are persuaded to order a hundred hours of community insurance so the nice Talkout might commence and should be considered by means of people far and wide, in all human languages, in addition to all animal languages.     
The narrative that ensues is deeply felt and powerfully knowledgeable. simply as he did while he wrote Only the Super-Rich Can keep Us, Nader exhibits right here that his visionary genius understands no limits.
