And please....I already understand that trying to explain the statements of these wackos is a nearly fruitless venture. I'm just trying to figure out what this one has against brand-name clothing.
I'm still trying to figure that one out myself. I think it's directed at either the idea that all this mass-market stuff (like Hillfiger and Polo) which is so popular with the 'urban class' is mass-produced in third world sweat shops by those evil resource-raping capitalist pig-dog corporations. It might also have something to do with driving the need for consumer status symbols--if we didn't hold these up as desirable items, the sheeple wouldn't want them.
God, where would we be without these enlightened liberal academics (especially the over-indulged twenty-something liberal spawn)...They're so much more 'enlightened' than you or I...</extreme sarcasm>
After all, the best back packs are made for hiking and you can find the best colors.
It's been my experience people like these wear MORE brand name stuff than ANYONE I have ever seen. They create their frigging lifestyle around it.
