Punk Rock = Capitalism About a million years ago, I did a Google search for the words 'punk' and 'capitalism' together, fully expecting to be greeted by dozens of articles written by rabid thirteen-year-old anarchists and aging hippies, articles explaining how capitalism is inherently evil and exploits the working class and blah blah frigging blah. Well, I did find more than anyone's share of those kinds of articles, but the top result happened to be this article by Todd Anderson at Popshot.net. It details some of the most important (and unfortunately most common) socio-political misunderstandings in the punk community, and it does so in a clear, insightful, intelligent way.
Thanks to Todd, for writing the article, and thanks to Lee for reminding me about it.
