30 years ago people complained about mainstream medias (it was the only stream then) coverage of the news and having too much control and influence.
Today, thanks to the empowerment of the internet, we live in a world where decisions are based on the outrage expressed by a handful of people who suffer from a combination of too much free time and a distinct shortage of functional brain matter.
They are our new overlords. They are the outspoken, self-righteous, vocal minority.
Social media, the internet, blogs, micro-blogging, whatever the heck you want to call it, has become little more than a tool for the “angrier than thou” to spout their own personal brand of self-indulgent, ego inflating, vitriol and I can’t believe that companies listen to these morons.
Have we seriously entered an era where the ravings of a group of people, who’s lives obviously lack enough substance that the logo of a faceless corporation can become their raison d’etre, carry enough weight to change corporate policy?
The Chilean Miners will never know anything ever happened to the #Gap logo.
