Just as Move On and the Tea Party, in spite of yelling angrily at each other across the ideological divide, both lead us to the same voting booth that is owned lock, stock and barrel by big money and the two mainstream parties, so all fashion statements from avant-garde to proletarian to conformist lead to the same place: the feeding of the capitalist maw.
As most progressives already know, John F.

We live in turbulent times mired in the problems of perpetual war and insecurity. The Internet has brought to light the caustic tales of oppression, propaganda, and rebellion. Peace has become the outlier. In a time where unprecedented scientific discoveries and efficiency have ruled the day, the people have become less free, more fearful and ultimately disposable. Our world has become a dystopian, inverted, totalitarian state. We have become the batteries in the matrix. The fodder for the war machine.
