“The big lie about capitalism is that everyone can be rich. That’s impossible. Capitalism works only if the vast majority of the population are kept poor enough to never quit working, are kept poor enough to accept distasteful jobs society cannot function without. If everyone were a millionaire, who would empty the trash or repair the sewers? It follows that the poorer the general population is made, the greater the worth of the money held by the wealthy, in terms of the lives which may be bought and sold with it.”—Michael Rivero (via kittencoaster, fucknobigbrother) (via iamthecrime) (via theloveontop) (via upandmeltaway)
In the early 2000s, women and girls wore shoes and boots with rounded or flat toes. Dressy, feminine styles were reintroduced over the course of the decade, as women’s fashion moved away from the more unisex styles of the 1990s. From the early 2000s onwards, women wore denimminiskirts, burberry, hip-hop inspired sweatpants, Daisy Dukes, ripped “distressed” jeans, flip-flops, ponchos, flared trousers, denim jackets and tank tops exposing the midriff. Colors like baby blue, yellow and hot pink were popular.
