The modern slave likes Fashion.
Fashion is a way to exchange money for status and vice versa. Rich slaves are fashionable because they have money. Famous designer slaves have money because they make Fashion for rich slaves. Together with mannequin slaves they create the illusion known as Glamour, which is French for “I’m richer than you”.
Numerous media outlets exist to tell the slaves who have neither money nor status how to have, at least, lowercase slave fashion. By “lowercase fashion” is meant mass-produced garments designed to clothe slaves for a full fashion cycle of 3 months.
The garments themselves may last somewhat longer, but will no longer serve the practical purpose of being fashionable. By this time, however, new fashion will be available in order to replace the selection of unfashionable clothes purchased 3 months earlier.
Lowercase fashion is segmented into Brands for distribution among the slaves. Brands are magic charms that turn mass-produced cheap
garbage garments into expensive fashion for modern slaves. Wearing the same Brand is an act of self-affirmation and uniqueness as a slave. Brands are associated to glamorous slaves, which makes them expensive. Being expensive is a slave status symbol not associated to any material reality.
Fashion slavery is a pyramid scheme with three layers. At the top are the glamorous slaves, in the middle are the slaves who consume lowercase fashion, and at the bottom are the slaves that manufacture lowercase fashion. By “manufacture slaves” is meant slaves who cannot afford the items they manufacture. These slaves are not your neighbors… yet.
By working 14-hour shifts in sweat shops, manufacture slaves aspire to become consumer slaves. Meanwhile, by working 14-hour shifts in offices, consumer slaves aspire to NOT become manufacture slaves. In order to maintain this delicate balance, raw material slaves must continue to rape and pillage the Earth entity to provide for an endless supply of useless
Raw material slaves are buried underneath the fashion slavery pyramid. In the old days, the labor of these slaves was essential to keep everyone else from starving and going naked. Today, raw material slaves engage in the extraction of rare metals for the proper functioning of our modern slave control technology. These slaves are not your neighbors either… yet.
So be fashionable, slave. Being in contravention of the current slave fashion can get you targeted as an escaped or “turrurist” slave and sent to Fashion Reeducation Camp, where you will LEARN to LOVE FASHION the HARD WAY, MAGGOTSLAVE!
The choice, as always, is yours.
