On irony and empty gestures

It’s a bit rich that your book recommendations about anti-capitalism all link to an Amazon sales website, which is one of the most capitalistic current ventures cutting the legs out from independent book retailers. Adults are capable of finding a book on their own but you hold our hands and take us to Amazon. I enjoy the irony.

Adults are capable of finding books on their own? Goddamn, you’re a smug little shit. Of course, even smug little shits can make a valid point, so I went back and changed all the links to Powell’s Books.

It’s an empty gesture at the expense of other people’s convenience, but hey, at least it’s no longer irony you’re enjoying. It’s just the smell of your own farts.
