This video shows some good news and it shows some bad new. This guy is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Adbuster Magazine, which is Canada-based magazine that explores the relationship between consumerism and the many psychological, environmental or culture problems we may have because of it. I’ve never read it, but I’m very interested in it just from looking around on their website. The lady is a CNN anchor, who has a bit of a problem. Before she even announces the guy, she is already laughing. That’s the bad news. It shows just how far we have to come. America is the land of the consumerist. It’s the American Dream to consume as much as we can. Her attitude is disheartening, but Kalle handles it quite well. He’s not offended and he does his best to talk over her rudeness. The good news is that he even got this air-time in the first place. Many channels wouldn’t even let his commercial air and the fact that many Americans have the same attitude as the anchor, it really is awesome that anyone gave him the time of day. Some of the people who saw this reacted the same as the anchor, but the people who have heard something about it before may let it sink in a little longer before they push it out of their minds until the next time they hear about it. It takes time, but this was a good step.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and have a great Green Friday.
