Join us in a Buy Nothing Christmas! We’ll be releasing our EP for FREE DOWNLOAD for a limited 12 days of Christmas. Stay tuned to BOO …
Democracy, the ability of citizens to have some say in how their society operates, has been overrun by corporate interests. While some intellectuals hold out hope for the citizen, I’m not so optimistic. My participation in a Buy Nothing Christmas is one way for me to say that I’m against the pro-corporate orientation of our society.
In some respects, citizens as consumers have been reduced to the role of subjects in a feudal society, where corporate interests are king. It’s empowering for me to shed this self-concept and take an anti-consumerist stance.
