The lady is "outraged that this generation of kids is not more concerned"? Excuse me? I'm 26 and I'm concerned, but I'm not really sure about this adbusters website. Preach to the choir much?

The only person that spoke to me in this vid was the guy right at 2 minutes: "We can't talk about addressing the corruption until we address the corruption in ourselves."

So our generation hasn't mobilized the way our parents did against Vietnam. True, but it would be a whole different story if there was a draft today.

We did mobilize for Obama and we continue to "address the corruption in ourselves" in small ways. I protest by buying from thrift stores when I buy at all. I protest by buying food with as little processing as possible. I support the environment by insulating my attic and leaving the AC off in the summer. Our generation does what it can. Maybe we don't believe in walking the streets carrying placards, maybe so, but we do what we believe is right in our own way.

Mmmm!

the examples you mentioned are NOTHING like direct action or open protest.

i do believe that the majority of my fellow "kids" (i'm 22) is not concerned at all, about anything really. all they care about is the next HIP party on saturday, the HIP new shoes of this and that brand, buying, consuming, celebrating themselves. they're spoiled. here in holland, they dont even protest against the drastic cutbacks in the education sector, even though it concerns THEM the most. and yes it's really drastic....

so maybe they "shop green" or whatever. great, i'm proud of them. (be aware of sarcasm)
it's all bullshit, "actions" like shopping green or alike do not change a thing, nor do they QUESTION a thing, not even that! it's just for those who can afford it, so they can feel good about themselves...!

NOTHING will ever replace direct action. WAKE THE F*CK UP AND GET ACTIVE! strategies may differ, be creative...!

i am part of that active minority, and damnit, it can be very hard at times, cos you dont see any wonderful results in a short period of time.. (who knows, maybe it takes another century or more to change things, minds..??)

but that's how it works. when you want change, you need endurance, and lots of it.
inactivity is our enemy.
