|||||against me! - cliche guevara||]|
i love giving in to american capitalism, i am the proud owner of an iPod, and people will tell you it's escapist to just listen to music all day and nod and that's it, but it's not. it's better than dealing with most shit. i think and operate better when it's just me and my thoughts, and my thoughts are most clear when someone is screaming politically charged intellectually appealing lyrics into my ears. and when i'm thinking you can be guaranteed i'm thinking against the system.
and on that note, i hate when people judge me that way because i give in to american capitalism of necessity for stuff like a winter coat, food, and a guitar. BUT i use resources like those to FIGHT american capitalism; in this way i recomp for my actions, even if they are not justified. the only way to completely not participate in american capitalism is to adopt an escapist ideology by default, and escapism is willful ignorance and that's far worse.
