  2. I’ll leave aside the comment about shaving, but do want to address the impact of actions like this. First, the analysis is not whether guerrilla theater alone can shift social policy, but rather whether it can help raise awareness. Consider the counter-factual: these people staying home certainly wouldn’t have helped, and because they came out, shot a video and distributed it, hundreds of thousands of viewers have learned more about the issue. Second, it’s unfair to judge the impact of any discrete action, as the relevant analysis is of culture as a whole (of which this is of course a mere part). It’s ubiquity that gives conscious art gains its strength — isolated voices are dismissed as crackpots, but when Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, John Pryor and John Lennon were spitting similar themes, they were hard to ignore.

  3. i watch these videos to inspire
    a life aloof away from the mire
    of drone existences, set to expire
    at 62, 65 … it just gets higher.
    The imaginary value that our lives offer,
    pale to the real value of corporate coffers
    with their ability to outlaw my love,
    their conference calls to bomb from above,
    the theft of my self made culture
    to sell it back to me,
    regurgitated by 5th ave. vultures –
    it is this action that is alive,
    not the dead consumption
    they’ve told us we must buy –
    it is the voice, the movement, the song
    that realigns paths to right from wrong.

    thank you for this great work of conscience,
    it does a soul good;
    from the lost voids of the alps
    in this central european wood.
