They drink at Starbucks. They sleep on furniture made by IKEA. They are part of an entity which continues to destroy until there is nothing else, all for the sole purpose of generating profit. And somewhere deep inside these people is the underlying truth that somewhere down the line they lost their humanity, and became supporters of the institutions that destroyed it...
