well that's the big lie in america itn't it? that you are "free" to live the life you choose? it's become such a meaningless word here that, as you point out, it's used to sell anything to everyone. cus that's the truth. you are free to become whichever type of consumer you wish just so long as you consume. you are free to choose which war-loving party to join. free to listen to "rock" , "rap" or "alternative". you can choose which tv shows and sports to watch. you can even choose to get your news from cnn or fox.

i've found that the more i distance myself from all of the options above, the happier i am.


Patriotsploitation is own catagory of advertising now. Negativland did a fun takeoff of that in "Freedom's Waiting," playing off, among other things, the old 7/11 ad slogan "experience the freedom of 7/11." Washington Mutual Bank in a recent billboard campaign promoted its checking accounts with the slogan Home of the Free with (checking) in a smaller font just underneath and various "all-American imagery" in the background.

The Soviets used to argue that what Americans mean by freedom is just free enterprise.
