We almost pulled this off once back in the 70's
Anti-corporate feelings were at an all time high.
People were into self reliance, and rejecting every-
thing that was "plastic-fantastic" or that they
couldn't grow themselves.
In the picture above notice that there are no
logos on any of the clothing. Unless someone
was a member of a sports team. People barely
cut their hair, and every week another
boycott was in action against some company.
The business world discovered that it could
shop-lift the kids through the tiniest of little
symbols. If they could get them to wear
a logo, any logo. They could begin to sell
them their own identities back.
Behold the Izod.
The next year, the boycotts were
still happening. But not as often.
Something was out of place.
The heart wasn't in it. People
felt disconnected somehow.
Notice the tiny little logo on his sleeve.
Notice how much more relaxed peoples
hair looks now that they are using
"conditioner" to "get-the-knots-out."
Corporate profits began to rise again.
So even though the situation is worse now
(the kids get their logos tattooed on these days)
it should be easy to reverse the process.
All you need is some tiny little symbol, and
knowledge of mass psychology, to make it work.
