the end of The
was a vast deception.
Who really won?
It wasn't "we the people..."
The Corporate Pig is with us promoting a brand of socialism that doublespeaks itself as capitalism.
as it was in Soviet style communism: the Enemy. YOU are contained and controlled in a "market."
YOU have a predictable demographic profile.
Let's run YOUR numbers and dictate a retirement plan and assign some likely consumer behaviors. YOU respond to brand named doo-doo at every turn and literally Eat, Wear, Breathe and Wallow in shit!
And the practitioners of Corporate Fascism and mutant PsuedoScience have created the ultimate Tower of Babel: The Internet. It came straight from dubious threesome: UCLA's School of Engineering and USC's "Information Sciences" program in partnership with the military aa funded through a little outfit in Santa Monica: The Rand Corporation.
So, I submit: their best war scenario has been run and Corporate Amerika won. Quietly. Subtly. And with wonderful public relations that deceive by "acquiring" all things in its paths.
...here we are, feeding the Pig.
With our creativity, our ingenuity, our money, and our votes...
...to satisfy the cravings of a faceless collection of corporate bureaucrats answerable to another collective mass of Wall Street swindlers selling "portfolios" to more faceless masses engaged in a pretentious form of gambling (glorified as "risk-taking") based on the continued acquisition of resources (the earth) and labor (the people) to further the cause of corporate domination of the world?
unite as individuals and don't sell out.
I'd like to thinkit's not too late.
If you permit Culture to become just another commodity we are all sunk.
That's my Rant. For the moment. Revised August 8, 1999.
I hate you, Bill Gates.
I love you, Jenny Holtzer.
