Anyone can be a drone, a follower, a clone. There is nothing easier in life than to do as you are told, behave as 'they' expect you to behave, and look just like your peers.
There is a series of photos going around of people dressed in some of the most outrageous and colourful outfits entitled The People of Wal-Mart. You are suppose to look and make fun of them. They are like 'freaks'. Fair enough, some of these people are very overweight and unhealthy and this is not a good thing either, but since when has dressing flamboyantly been a crime? Ever stop for a second and wonder what benchmark you are judging these people against? Let that one sink in for a second. I used to laugh at these people too at one time. Not now. I do not feel sorry for them either. I see potential to piss off the system.
Conformity is the key to social control and manipulation. Brands, designer fashions, product awareness, labels and icons of normality remain the most vicious shackles which bind the psyches of the general public to a far greater degree than any totalitarian mandate, will impose upon them.
If they are standing in the freezing rain for days to get the latest iPhone, who needs a machine gun tower and electric fence? You got the slaves doing what you need them to do. To be just like everyone else. This was how Hitler, Trotsky, Stalin and Mao achieved complete domination over their subjects. The 'sameness' doctrine also created the horrors of Eugenics and the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
When I see the most flamboyantly dressed (rather than the very obese) 'People of Wal-Mart, I see the human spirit in all its beauty. Here are ordinary people rebelling against the retail giant which has more than any other corporate entity, single-handedly been responsible for the annihilation of American culture and small business. Same looking, grey monolithic stores, same brands in predictable abundance at the psychopathic epicentre among the same desolate vista of empty small stores and bankrupt service providers for miles around. Yet in this shithole of slavery, we see fleeting spasms of individuality arrive now and again to remind us all that it doesn't have to be this way.
Once you are not wearing a regulation-issue, standard uniform and knocking on my door at 4AM, I really don't give a shit how you dress once you are doing it for yourself and not mass media. Chances are, if people are 'uncoordinated' in their dress sense, they won't harm you.
On some deeper level, I see the flamboyance of the People of Wal-Mart as a sort of rebellion against what Wal-Mart is all about. On some archetypal and instinctual human subconscious undercurrent, these folks are 'rocking the conformity boat' which the psychopathic-drive behind entities such as Wal-Mart need to constantly maintain in order to keep their monstrous business model going. Rather than laughing and mocking the colourful and eccentric People of Wal-Mart, perhaps we all need to be a little more like them and cause the Control Grid some real stress. There is a reason why it is so much fun to dress up crazy on Halloween and why it makes you feel good - it's called freedom.
In a Globalist world, one of the greatest revolutionary acts is to be an individual who doesn't give a shit what the fashion editor at Vogue or Cosmopolitan thinks about you.
