Odd how many people naturally assume that the point of this day is aimed at corporations, or "the system" in general.
I've always taken it as being aimed at yourself. It's about re-evaluating your own needs and lifestyle, and the motivations behind the things you buy.
As in: Why DO I automatically grab a Coke without thinking about it whenever I'm in the 7-11?
And: I make better burgers than any restaurant within 500km of here. Why do I suddenly feel the need for McD's?
And: I've got a bunch of DVDs I haven't watched yet. How about I stay home and watch one of those tonight, instead of going to see the latest movie they're hyping.
And so on.
You'd think that the whole idea of mind control via commercial advertising wouldn't be so lost on a conspiracy website..
