You move from purchase to purchase, guided by your self-interest in appropriating moral righteousness, that righteousness affirmed by your purchases. You can afford the "good," the organic, the tasteful. You deserve the "good."

What does that mean for those who cannot afford the "good"? Do they deserve the "bad"? Is their inferiority confirmed by these purchases? What do you deserve for using your privilege to perpetuate a symbolic moral righteousness that supports the legitimacy of capitalism and the inequalities it's hungry mouth demands?

I'd just like to say: Rock. That's great stuff.
