Re: <nettime> walk for capitalism

A very welcome move on the part of 
Capitalists, a much neglected constituency 
among those who see visible direct action 
as an important means of influencing the Public.

Cultural Ethnographers will, doubtlessly, 
be keen to see who Capitalists think they 
are, how they define themselves as a 
culture, and how their demands, if any, 
are articulated, with what expected 

Additionally, the health benfits of 
Capitalists deciding to walk rather 
than drive will improve the urban 
environment for us all.

Capitalists should be encouraged to walk 
in all of our cities rather than drive more often. We should all lend our moral and
material support to this initiative.

This is an encouraging move on the part of Capitalists. It is good to see that they
have decided to become visible as a social 
and political force sharing special
interests groups taking to the streets.

What's next? Rolex's Against Racism? Wall Street for Welfare? The Pentagon for Peace? National Security Agency are People Too?
Marketeers for Mohammed?
