Very interesting!  Those who keep insisting that the "army" who are  coming 
after us will use "guns" are, of course, WAY out-of-date.
Warfare became (overwhelmingly) PSYCHOLOGICAL over 70+ years ago and the  
"weapons" being used against us -- for all of our lives -- have been  
(by-and-large) ADVERTS!
The important thing about advertising as a WEAPON is that you actually can  
*ignore* it or, better yet, you can get *angry* at being assaulted and 
fight  back.  Just don't *buy* the stuff.
This is exactly what is now happening.  The overall impact of  advertising 
is now *permanently* on the decline, so the TIDE OF WAR has  shifted.
Thus the *escalation* in the apparent "warfare" against us and thus the  
impossibility of "recovery" in the post-industrial economies.
As far as I can tell, no one has thought through the implications of this  
EPIC change -- with the "capitalists" and the "communists" still hoping that 
 they can continue with the "struggle" they have been having for 200 years.
They can't.  It's over.
