The Truth is Coming!

Walking by the Manhattan Barnes and Noble on Union Square the other day, I encountered a demonstration about surveillance. That’s nice.

the truth is coming 3_smNo, wait, what’s with the clean coordinated outfits and chants and signs? What’s this, some  PR stunt to advertise the new documentary about Edward Snowden? Really, Laura Poitras?! How could you? Guy Debord is turning over in his grave.

the truth is coming 1Ah, it’s really for some obscure Hollywood film trying to ride that vast crest that is the Snowden documentary. Trying to selfishly skim off the massive American criticism of the US surveillance apparatus. Shame on you, mediocre Hollywood film. I’m not even going to put a link here for you. Well, at least these young people have jobs. They must be making good money as fake protesters. And the hours are good.

But…wait, there’re an awful lot of people sitting on the sidelines. At least they’re clapping, but…  Oh, wait…
