Note to the letter to PS dated 11 December 1984
The thesis of Paolo Salvadori had been that Gerard Lebovici could only have been assassinated by the French State, and because he represented a grave and imminent peril to it. PS affirmed that I had to "reveal" this unquestionable (but perhaps a little abstract) truth immediately. According to him, the respect that one customarily had for my analyses would guarantee that everyone would understand this thesis.
One must remember that this text [the letter in response] was precisely dated.
Since then, certain details evoked in it have already changed, and I believe I myself have made notable theoretical progress in the analysis of the advanced spectacular society. But the ensemble remains exact.G.D.
 Letter to Paolo Salvadori dated 11 December 1984.
