Saw this in the car park at work. If you’re going to protect the interior of your car from the West Australian sun, why not do it in Pop Cultural style? To have Chewie, Han, Luke and Obi Wan sitting in your Mazda is why we fought and won the last war. Which one? Any of them, apart from the War on Drugs. It’s pretty obvious that Drugs are winning that one. Their supply lines need to be cut. Or maybe we should just wait for the Russian Winter. The thing is this; Freedom and Democracy are about the right to buy and sell frivolous things and not just about the serious stuff that Maslow buried at the base of his pyramid. Sure, the Third World probably doesn’t get why we in the First World want a USB stick shaped like a piece of sushi, but we do and we’re prepared to pay for it on E-bay.
