Transcript of Persuasive Speech
What does that mean? Well, go out to your street corner. You’ll probably see a gas station, a fast food restaurant, and a pharmacy down the block. You’ll go into a store and see new recordings and movies by the usual suspects, maybe a special display rack. Go out onto a street corner in London and you’ll see the same thing. Same in Prague. Same in Sao Paulo. Same in Osaka, and Grozny, and Tehran, and Jo’burg, and Hobart. That’s what the monoculture is. It’s everywhere, and it’s all the same. It takes up alien cultures and digests them and spits them out in a homogenous building-block shape that fits seamlessly in the vast blank wall of the monoculture. This is the future. This is what we built. This what we wanted. It must have been. Because we all had the choice, didn’t we? It is only our money that allows commercial culture to flower. If we didn’t want to live like this, we could have changed it any time, by not paying for it. So let’s celebrate by all going out and buying the same burger. We live in a monoculture.
