We're Back

Everything Has Failed

But where is the revolution?

So, Adbusters, I hope you’re finally satisfied. Issue after issue you proclaimed the system dead or dying, and now things have gone your way. So where is the revolution? I don’t see any rainbows in the sky or people dancing in the streets. Yes, there’s a redistribution of wealth, or should I say a near-total elimination of it. But I can’t quite see how this is going to change the world in a positive way.

Where I live the water is now undrinkable and people can’t get their medicine. The old guy next door was attacked and stabbed for his groceries, something once unheard of in my neighborhood. All of my family have lost their jobs. Living in fear and surviving just to get by is not a liberating experience. It kills the soul. We will survive, trust me, but not by reading Adbusters. It’s kinda ironic: you morons lived to see the big day but now have nothing to say. I used to love your little spoof ads. Now you’re the spoof ad.
