Occupywallstreet + Adbusters

Did the Advertising Industry Spark the Occupation of Wall Street?

Indirectly it appears the advertising industry has kicked off #occupywallstreet. Not intentionally of course and merely by being the subject of condemnation and opposition of Adbusters magazine. Adbusters has a point that gets lost too often in their anti-consumerism message and that is that 1% of the population have profited wildly from the last 20 years and the other 99% have seen zero. Special interest money has corrupted our system. That's not sustainable. It's not fair. And it's not the America that 99% of Americans want. If this is a democracy, those numbers should matter.

Sehr schöne Aktion! :) Obwohl ich an den Zusammenhang nicht glaube.
