Caption: Boycott Christmas! The Christmas Resistance Movement. The greedy capitalist oppressors are using guilt to manipulate consumers into purchasing mass-produced "gifts" for their friends and loved ones! They want you to believe love itself is a commodity which can be exchanged for commercial products! While there are an infinite number of other ways to express love, and 364 other days to give gifts, they insist you must buy things for Christmas--whole industries depend on it! This year, don't play along! Don't buy Christmas presents! Don't buy Christmas cards! Don't buy Christmas decorations! Don't feel guilty! Boycott Christmas. Sabotage commerce.

Caption: This tape player doesn't work. Maybe it's like that on purpose. Why would anyone make a defective product on purpose?! Simple. Employee sabotage! See the capitalists who own the company that manufactured your tape player exploit the employees who actually do the work! They're trapped by economic necessity slaving for "the man" on degrading, meaningless production line tasks! Messing things up is one of the only ways a worker can express dissatisfaction! In a system where almost all their power and dignity is stripped away from them, sabotage can make a difference! So when you open that crappy product, when that appliance breaks as soon as you plug it in, when the goods you purchase are riddled with gaping conspicuous flaws - it means another blow has been struck for the REVOLUTION!! I still want my money back. Sure! I only work here!

Caption: Ah, puny earthlings! Destroying a species has never been so simple! Have you prepared the neural combustion code? All we have to do transmit it over their so-call "computer networks"! Millions of worker drones staring helplessly at their screens will be fried instantly! It's as if the humans were asking for it, sitting in front of those terminals like that! They're sitting ducks! Ha ha ha ha ha! So that's why I'm not buying a stupid computer ok? Technophobe!

Caption: Mr. Jones Makes the World a Better Place. Satancorp. Welcome aboard, Mr. Jones. As an employee of Satancorp, you'll be working to exploit poor people in third world countries, dump toxic waster into the air, earth and water, create wars, encourage political corruption and wipe out what's let of the rainforests. We'll pay you $50,000 a year - a remarkably high salary in today's depressed job market, but we'll be profiting many times that for the work you do! You'll be expected to work 9-to-5 like everyone else, and attend after-hours social functions with your co-workers, thus not only will you be a cog in a large soulless machine, but also by example you'll be reinforcing the mindless, dependent lifestyle that keeps companies like Satancorp running smoothly! Here's your first paycheck! Gosh, now that I work Satancorp, I can finally afford to donate to charities and buy that recycling bin, thereby making the world a better place!
