    Hmm. I have exactly the same puppet as Enron Hubbard in an old box of toys somewhere. It’s ancient. That is all.

    Don’t panic, everything will be ok. The Situationist New Deal will sort all of this out.

    NO… It’s a cookbook! Soylent Green is people! There is no sanctuary! Rise up!

    Keep running around, but focus instead of making your job better: be more alert and work, stay ahead, work out, be on top of problems and bet one step ahead of the guy sitting next to you.

    What is this job thing to which you refer? And sitting? Do they sit on auto assembly lines? Oh, never mind; they’re closed anyway.

    @zuzu: In general you’re right, except in the case of surreal anti-capitalist Christmas songs, which we should all buy as many as possible of.

    BTW, why Zuzu is full of it: The Feast of the Wingnuts.

    Ah, yes, that explains everything! ::eyeroll::

    Actually, I love these, even though I’m not a Marxist. Besides, is there a more Marxist holiday than Christmas? Giving unselfishly to others with no expectation of return? It’s positively unAmerican!!

    We’re in a time of learning and pushing ourselves harder, not a “time of crisis”. It’s good to recognize the problem, but running around with our hands in the air spending less and cutting back is the one thing that brings the economy down.

    What a load of Keynesian consumerism bullshit.

    I try to resist the urge to comment in these Monochrom posts because it seems to me we just have a fundamental disagreement about the nature of capitalism and human coordination for the fulfillment of human desires.

    But, Dantplayer, I’m so sick of hearing in mainstream media that we need to spend our way out of this economic crisis. That people not spending money (when clearly they need to be saving and they know it) is the “problem” rather than the solution — is exactly what got us into this ever deepening credit-dependent hole to begin with!

    Do you have any concept of return on investment at all?
    Do you have any idea what “economic growth” actually means?

    Spending money for its own sake only continues the pattern of wealth destruction.
