Hooray for optimism. It probably says more about me that I don't
believe the 'masses' will change their patterns of consumption until
they are forced to, and the only power able and unrestrained by
consideration of profit is the power of nature scorned. And then
it will be too late.

The majority will buy whatever they are spoonfed, and the corporations
know it. (mis-)Quote H.L.Mencken "No one ever lost money by under-estimating
the intelligence of the masses"
