Here's an example of an (thank goodness non-violent) anti-captialist potesting about "dirty capitalism", trying to "vacuum it up". It's hilarious. His comments on how consumerism is a religion are so ironic they almost don't exist. His choice quote is "I've got no illusions that what we do is going to stop people shopping but after seeing us [pretend] praying, they may go home and have a question in their mind about the society we've created." Does he mean a society which has allowed such nonsense ideas to become worthy of mainstream media attention? He might have a point if he does!
