Norman Mailer on The Big Empty

Another article at Adbusters, taken from New York magazine.

Good message – capitalism & corporations are not intrinsically wrong per se, it’s the global corporate “culture” that is stultefying. The objective bottom-line value systems on which such coporations operate are so narrow (even if they “account” for environmental issues), that the quality is all “static”, the dynamic quality is driven out, flattened.

Evolution to new species needs isolation, as well as a supportive environment. Total global communication of memes is not necessarily a good thing. Competing ideas need space to flourish as well as compete, not drowning at birth.
