Adbusters is once again sponsoring BUY NOTHING DAY this
Friday, November 27th. That's the day after Thanksgiving,
which is traditionally the most frantic
consumer-schlock-acquisition day of the year. Buy Nothing
Day is an excellent way to say "Fuck You" to the architects
of an economy based on people like you and me going into
crippling debt in order to buy glitzy useless shit.
Send a backlash to the bean-counters on BND. Tell them you don't like having
an economy tax (which is essentially what excess consumer spending is) put on
your ass during Christmas. Tell the world that you're cashing out of this
stupid Ponzi scheme. Tell them you're not going to bail out collapsed
economies in totalitarian Asian countries by buying their useless crap created
with captive labor at starvation wages. It's YOUR MONEY --just for one day,
quit giving it to pigs and idiots.
