The Case Against Adbusters

Readplatform is dead on:

Last Friday Buy Nothing Day went largely unobserved in the United States despite being heavily promoted by the magazine Adbusters. Thatís mostly because, like Adbusters, Buy Nothing Day is bullshit... Are hoards of Americans lining up at 4 A.M. outside of Best Buy or fighting for the last copy of Halo 7 in GameStop on Black Friday clues that our society is too preoccupied with material things? Yeah. But itís still a lot better than a bunch of yuppies giving themselves congratulatory handjobs because they postponed their Christmas shopping.
