Buy Something Today

Well, yesterday if you're in Canada and the U.S., but today if you're in the U.K. or in Japan.

Technically, it's Buy Nothing Day over there. Yesterday was Buy Nothing Day for us here in the U.S. and in Canada. I bought some organic coffee yesterday at the local vegan/organic/anti-capitalist joint. I did it for the wrong reason, of course, I needed coffee. Today I will go out and buy something for the right reason: Namely, to enjoy some capitalism and make a political statement to boot.

So join me and buy stuff. It doesn't have to be fancy. It doesn't matter what it is, in fact. Purchasing is its own reward. And there's no reason not to enjoy capitalism when you can.
