The Revoution is Dead! Long Live the Revolution!

I don't understand revolutions. That's not to say I don't understand when people rise up and take something; I don't understand comercial revolutions.

Take the Atikins deit: apparently it's a, "low-carb revolution," but how? Are people launching daring raids against pasta factories and I just missed the sweeping headlines?
//They would be freaking hillarious though:

ATKINS REBELS LEVEL LINGUINI FACTORY!
ITALY LIVES IN FEAR TONIGHT

Maybe it's just me.//
It's bizzare. Revolting against, "the man," is cool, so cool that, "the man," is turning around and selling it to people. It's not even a new thing, it's been going on for generations. Gangsters in the 20's and 30's, James Dean and complany after that, hippies, punks, etc. ridiculous.

It's like the concept of, "punk fashion," huh? Whatever, it just seems so hypocritical to have people like Harley Davidson claiming all this American rebillion bullshit and then charging prices that only middle-aged nostalgia can afford it.

Oh well, effective marketing that yields results will continue, I just think it's stupid. "Fight the power! Buy this new Cities 97 sampler!"

It's the concept of buzzwords. You use a word enough and it loses all meaning.

Wow, I'm so insightful.
