Comics don’t lie

From my favourite comic, Transmetropolitan:

“That’s what a monoculture is. It’s everywhere, and it’s all the same. And it takes up alien cultures and digests them and shits them out in a homogenous building-block shape that fits seamlessly into the vast blank wall of the monoculture. This is the future. This is what we built. This is what we wanted. It must have been. Because we all had the fucking choice, didn’t we? It is only our money that allows commercial culture to flower. If we didn’t want to live like this, we could have changed it any time, by not fucking paying for it. So lets celebrate by all going out and buying the same burger.”

There’s one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it’s one word long — people.

No matter how big the idea is they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened.

It’s people that kill every revolution. -Spider Jerusalem
