For example, I could never say 'classically', "Each man faces his culture as Winston Smith or Winston Rodney," because the eloquence of the statement can't make people more familiar with reggae music, and if you don't know much about reggae, Rastafarianism, or the artist Burning Spear (Christian name: Winston Rodney), then you can't understand or recognize the eloquence or cleverness or usefulness of the equation. Orwell's 1984, though, is almost too 'classically' prominent. How then do we expand the classics?

Raggasonic and Lord Kossity are the only things I've ever heard with a reggae flavour, albeit more ragga, that I've liked and that have come out of France.
There are plenty Ska revive groups around in France and some good ones at that: Jim Murple Memorial amongst others.
