Let's go shopping

Για τα shopping riots που λαμβάνουν χώρα τώρα στην Αγγλία (πως στο Dubai έχουν shopping festival? Στην Αγγλία έχουν επινοήσει κάτι καλύτερο –looting festival), διάβασα αυτό το hilarious άρθρο από την guardian:

Συγκεκριμένα, το σημείο που λέει ότι:

«…I think it's just about possible that you could see your actions refashioned into a noble cause if you were stealing the staples: bread, milk. But it can't be done while you're nicking trainers, let alone laptops. In Clapham Junction, the only shop left untouched was Waterstone's, and the looters of Boots had, unaccountably, stolen a load of Imodium. So this kept Twitter alive all night with tweets about how uneducated these people must be and the condition of their digestive systems. While that palled after a bit, it remains the case that these are shopping riots, characterised by their consumer choices: that's the bit we've never seen before. A violent act by the authorities, triggering a howl of protest – that bit is as old as time. But crowds moving from shopping centre to shopping centre? Actively trying to avoid a confrontation with police, trying to get in and out of JD Sports before the "feds" arrive? That bit is new…

(πληροφοριακά, το Waterstones είναι γνωστή αλυσίδα βιβλιοπωλείων στην Αγγλία. Το Imodium είναι χάπια που καταπολεμούν την ευκοιλιότητα).

Όταν η Αγορά λειτουργεί πετυχεμένα τότε μετατρέπει όλους μας σε μεσο-αστούς -στα θέλω μας και μάλιστα χωρίς να μας δίνουν τα ανάλογα λεφτά (μισθό).

Οπόταν, προς τι η έκπληξη;

Ακόμα και αν δεχτούμε την μονόπλευρη πληροφόρηση των βρετανικών ΜΜΕ... και δεχτούμε ότι τούτον είναι το ενδιαφέρον των εξεγερμένων εγγλέζων... αυτό απλά επιβεβαιώνει την απάνθρωπη απολυτότητα τούτου του συστήματος που φέρει ακέραια την ευθύνη για την κατάσταση στα μυαλά των "υπηκόων".

By the way folks, ακόμα θυμάμαι τους "παρέες" που εκουβαλούσαν βίντεο κατά τις "διαμαρτυρίες" ενάντια στην συναυλία του Sakis στα κατεχόμενα το 97.

HAHA! hilarious ke idietera pikriko!

Hiller takes up this idea: "Consumer society relies on your ability to participate in it. So what we recognise as a consumer now was born out of shorter hours, higher wages and the availability of credit. If you're dealing with a lot of people who don't have the last two, that contract doesn't work. They seem to be targeting the stores selling goods they would normally consume. So perhaps they're rebelling against the system that denies its bounty to them because they can't afford it."
