Shadow Culture

In my search for a plan (protesting globalization is not enough, individual action & demonstration are not enough) I came across this piece of sanity:

The act of asking for less, not more, is a radical act – far more radical than it's ever given credit for.

If you don't believe me, ask yourself why, after modern history's most appalling act of terrorism, the President of the united States of America would tell his people to keep on shopping or the terrorists win.

Here's why: consumption keeps the system standing. Take away consumption, and you need to come up with a radically different system.
