Do you look around at all the stuff and the music and the glitz and the Holiday Bonanzathon - do you think that you're just a pawn in the midst of a giant used car lot? Being shuffled this way and that, now you have to buy for every single person you might bump into on the sidewalk - because if you don't it's just plain rude you know. All this fake phony fucking etiquette - all this big big shame shame if you point out the man behind the curtain - it's a noo noo omg you know! Dare you seem down dare you seem annoyed some Stepford Holiday Wife gone Wild will begin to point at you and scream. "You're ungrateful dear you simply don't realize that a child in Bangladesh worked very hard to make that piece of stuff there on that shelf and the stores have been generous enough to mark it down from their 400 percent mark-up to a 350 percent markup showing just how generous they can be.." Some child is working 7 days straight and you have no right to complain about the condition of this nation .” (Yes because remaining silent and perpetuating child labor and slave labor is what makes Nations great and what prevents child labor?)
You know what's bad etiquette ... how about the rate of homelessness and wage stagnation, how about the way Wall Street is making massive land grabs with your tax dollars and then charging you an apartment price that eats your entire stagnated wage? - seems like pretty fucking bad etiquette to me - ! How about boycotting that cheap piece of crap box store or Christmas all together until we abolish slavery and child labor in factories across the world - how about teaching children the value of knowing that giving can't cover up all the ignorance and systems that create poverty to begin with? Seems like pretty fucking bad etiquette to me to keep perpetuating it - kind of negates any donation you made this year... - so you know what Wall Street take your big fat Orwellian Consumer Christmas and shove it !!! I'm not afraid to say it.
One small boycott here, one giant leap for Humankind - Bankrupt Big Box and tell your relatives and co-workers to shove it - you're boycotting shopping this year!!! in the name of that kid in Bangladesh or China or Zaipan - who matters - life is too precious to be wasted
