Happy Buy Nothing Day, everybody!
Buy Nothing Day is the brainchild of Adbusters, who recently found infamy as the inventors of the filth-drug-and-rapefest known as the Occupy movement.
Since the WCV signed on to BND in 2008, the message has become not just anti-consumerism, but anti-capitalism. The Adbusters, perhaps emboldened by the re-election of Barack Obama, are now open about their intent to smash capitalism. I obviously don't agree with that, but I'll hold on to the anti-consumerism angle. What capitalism needs is savings and investment, not debt-fueled consumption.
Buy nothing today. Really. You don't need that sh!t.
UPDATE: You're not going to listen? You're going to run with the cows? JDA covers the sick phenomenon of Black Friday in gory detail.
