Antillectual – The Invisible Hand Meets The Visible Fist

The Invisible Hand is an ode to conscious consumers in a capitalist world. A world dictating you to either produce commodities under sketchy circumstances or buy them.

Lyrics

Hardfought electoral merits
Vanished into hollow sway
A bribe seems our last ammunition
Consumer strike, strategic pay

Your invisible hand
Will meet our visible fist
Trust me we’ll take a stand
Together we will resist

Fashion victims wearing t-shirts
Paraphrasing human rights
Made by valid fashion victims
Who lost their shirt working the night

Orgies of consumer porn
The best things in life aren’t things, aren’t things at all
Life in debt since we were born
The best things in life aren’t things, aren’t things at all

First shots always come for free
Honey traps in search of prey
The house will always win as you can see

Liner notes

In a world where politicians govern their nations as companies, citizens are reduced to customers. Leaving citizens with little more influence than their spendings. So let’s use that mechanism and “celebrate” the crisis’ 10th birthday by making our purchases with even more care about who we support financially. The neoliberal narrative in which we are the extras only knows one language, so let’s address them in that same language: strategic purchases, striking as consumers and boycotting companies whose policies we don’t agree with are our only bribe to get a foot in the door.

Let’s show the invisible hand of the market the visible fist of the people! Merry 10 year crisiversary!
