Adbusters is a nonprofit Canadian based magazine, attempting to curb existing economic class structures. The magazine is geared towards anti-consumerist and environmentally friendly consumers. Founded in 1989 by Kalle Lasn and Bill Schmalz, both of which created a “global network of artist, activists, writers, pranksters, students educators, and entrepreneurs who want to advance the new socialist movement of the information age.” (1) Adbusters and Occupy Wall Street are so closely related because the magazine is the reason the movement exists today. 217 more words

An interesting quote from Adbusters magazine. It really summed up my mood after leaving the mall, seeing advertisements of supposed perfection, teenagers taking selfies, people attempting to buy happiness and cool. What are your thoughts?
