Culture Jamming

Listening to Cindy Sheehan speak in New York about the $750 million Madison Avenue advertising campaign to drum the words hope and change into American minds reminded me of the vast resources of the American aristocracy available to convince us that their servants like Obama are fighting for democracy. Ludicrous, I know, but as Sheehan observed, a quarter of the American populace — even after betraying 100% of his campaign promises — still believe the myth of Obama. Breaking that spell is going to require some serious culture jamming.
