The War on Capitalismus

We live in a society.

The funny haha Joker meme phrase, yes? But what kind of society do we live in? We are all reasonably aware of how the world works. What’s it’s become. Painfully aware for some.

Anyway, contemporary American capitalism and Christmas have quite the relationship.

Christmas of course has become more of a secular celebration by society at large than a religiously-associated holiday over time. All kinds of people have been saying that much for decades, although they all seem to think it happened more recently, but I feel like this has been a centuries long progression.

It hasn’t just become more commercial, it’s become more, I don’t know, procedural. We go through the motions. I just wonder, do people actually celebrate it like this because they want to, or has it just been because they’re obligated to at this point, you know?

Also, maybe it’s just me, but everything is bought! Few things are made. We’re in the economic toilet, aren’t we? Why don’t we get back to making things for the people we care about? Like shirts!

Not these shirts though. These shirts are merely for us cynics to express our displeasure at the commercialized holiday in a more tasteful and amusing manner. Well, I mean, they could be a fun gift… in a way.
