Good thoughts from Kalle Lasn:
If we, as a society, lose our voice completely, and corporations start doing all the talking, then we’ll be utterly lost. To some degree, this has already happened. Our ability to envision a future collectively has already been severely compromised.
Yet another reason to become a storychaser.
