Just Say No

Ms. Rosa Parks's great refusal as an exemplary tactic for the age of online consumption

Yeah, the Wachowski brothers already made the dumbass movie, but in this version the point wouldn't be to reboot a more benign opiate of the people but to reboot the very question of human freedom. Ralph Ellison once intimated that if you want to slip the yoke of slavery then you got to change the joke. Rosa Parks turned sitting on your Black ass into a liberation dance. The Blackfolk of 1956 Montgomery hurled carpooling at their oppressors like a Molotov cocktail. Here and now all we got to do to start a ruckus is stage a mass logoff of the virtual economy for a couple of centuries.
