Dear Old People Who Run the World,
My generation would like to break up with you.
Umair Haque, The Generation M Manifesto

You wanted EVIL, we want GOOD! You wanted A SHARP STICK IN THE EYE, we want HUGS. You wanted ALLIGATORS, we want PUPPIES! Nowhere in this protracted wankfest will you find a single idea—to the extent these shallow platitudes count as “ideas”—that couldn’t have been cribbed from a random issue of Utne Reader 15 years ago.
Julian Sanchez, The “M” is for “Marketing”

Change it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fall that’s all
But the world looks just the same
And history ain’t changed
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
Pete Townshend, Won’t Get Fooled Again, The Who

Maybe it’s time to look for a hammer
