No mostly peaceful bargain shopper on Culturally Enriched Fifthday ever called me a Black Hole.
Stay at home or work if you can. Don’t buy anything. Don’t feed the idea that this commercialistic monstrosity they’d love us to agree and amplify to before passing it on to our children’s generation is worth keeping alive. Start pulling plugs. Without life support, the monster dies. On Black Friday, don’t spend a cent on the trite nonsense pushed in ‘the culture.’ Keep some of what you make, before Shylock demands his pounds. Not a penny. Nor even a ha’penny. If it can be helped.
Defending to any degree the Neoliberal System of control, which these seemingly”innocuous” ‘holidays’ comprise; is like defending the crooked Scoutmaster that abused you by saying that was awhile ago and bygones are bygones. Small steps in a direction have cumulative effects. Cancel Netflix, drop your cable, do not feed commercialised, worthless days of reckoning. Don’t feel you need to explain yourself. You owe the jury of your peers no defense. Answer only if you choose. You are not wrong to free yourself from whatsoever of the many shackles you like.
If you should elect to rise above, you will offend the bottom feeders with their lips glued to the Gubmint’s shrivelled gangrene tit. That can’t be helped, but it makes a difference which can become positive.
