Individuality must die

Listening to the corporate drones on the train talk endlessley about their work; watching the yuppies tap away on the keyboards of their Air Macs; reading about how great Agyness Deyn, Daisy Lowe and Lily Allen are in The London Paper; reading how immigration, tax and poor people are the root of all evil in the London Lite,. All these things underscore, for me the fact that, the World has transmogrified into one consumerist mall filled with wrong-headed people, unable to act rationally. It makes me want to revisit Adam Curtis’ brilliant four-part documentary, Century of the Self.
