"Ms Klein, by her own account, was a late developer as a social revolutionary. Growing up in a family of activists and campaigners, her teenage rebellion took the form of devotion to the shopping mall and willing enslavement to the tyranny of the logo.

So instead of constructive thought, we get "anti-corporate resistance that will reshape society in the next 10 years." "It wasn't a skirmish or an opening salvo, but a manifesto etched in the streets by tens of thousands of people." -Adbusters (in reference to "Seattle Rebellion") -Adbusters (in reference to "Seattle Rebellion")
