: : The idea that working in these factories is somehow an escape is quite bizarre. You should be deeply ashamed of yourself.

: SDF: From reading Aihwa Ong's SPIRITS OF RESISTANCE AND CAPITALIST DISCIPLINE, it's easy to see how working in the "satanic mills" of the present is an escape from one regime of sexist exploitation into another. Escape? It's at least a system of baited traps, its justification is cynical...


To say the Least! Though I suppose the more tangible form of exploitation "offered" by the West may eventually result in effective reaction.

(Nike wouldn't dare try their shit with a workforce composed of 80% young men instead of women)

An Aside:

Looking up "Possessive+individualism" on "Google" I found this on the second page:

"Aye, you're batting your head against a brick wall"!!

How'd you do that;)
