How can even the idea of rebellion against corporate culture stay meaningful when Chrysler Inc. advertises trucks by invoking 'The Dodge Rebellion'? How is one to be bona fide iconoclast when Burger King sells onion rings with 'Sometimes You Gotta Break the Rules'? How can an Image-Fiction writer hope to make people more critical of televisual culture by parodying television as a self-serving commercial enterprise when Pepsi and Subaru and FedEx parodies of self-serving commercials are already doing big business? It's almost a history lesson: I'm starting to see just why turn-of-the-century Americans' biggest fear was of anarchist and anarchy. For if anarchy actually wins, if rulelessness become the rule, then protest and change become not just impossible but incoherent. It'd be like casting a ballot for Stalin: you are voting for an end to all voting.
