: macdonalds restaurants are essentially nowhere. if you are in bombay, beijing. sydney, new york or amsterdam it does not matter if you happen to be in a mac cathedral of consumerism. you are nowhere-anywhere, no-time/anytime, you only exist as a snout in a trough. get in, get filled, get out, you have no meaning, you are just a unit shifter, a demographic, a consumer. IT IS IMPORTANT TO RESIST THE DOMINATION OF MONOCULTURE. IN AUSTRALIA WE HAVE AN EXOTIC PEST CALLED CANE TOADS THAT ARE WIPING OUT SECTIONS OF NATIVE FAUNA

EXCUSE ME!!!!! I'm sure you think it's wonderful to stand up for the environment, but in such a way ??!!?? I'm a greeny and I wouldn't stoop to such levels! How dare you single out those countries, when all the problem is contained in your perception and YOUR head!

McSpotlight: If you actually read the message, you'll see that the original poster wasn't singling out any countries except to highlight the fact that they contained McDonald's branches; a fact in the public domain anyway. How was the original post blackening the name of anywhere except McWorld?
