I’ve argued that political consumers do not exist; they seem to disappear once the right occasion appears.
With Bill Maher’s not-exactly-politically-correct words, I also wish a little more political and a little less consumer:
No matter what you do for yourself, how right you eat, if the air is full of lead and the bug populations are out of control and your city is under water, it doesn’t matter. You can eat kale until it comes out of your ears. You can stay hydrated, slather on sunblock, steam your vagina, eat your placenta, work at a standing desk, and put a healing crystal up your ass, but there is no escaping the environment we all live in.
