To be fair, punk wasn't exactly a porky subculture until a bit later.
Because thoses symbols had been around for a longer time?
Anarchism, unlike other forms of socialism/communism, has historically been able to appeal to middle class and even upper class lifestylists who want something to symbolize that they're "edgy" and "different".
Much the same as Buddhism and other Eastern religion. Middle class lifestylists will grab on to all sorts of ideologies and school of thoughts, strip them of all meaning, and wear their iconography to give their pathetic selves some sort of unique sense of identity and feel like a rebel.
To be fair, you could say this about most leftist ideologies. There are white liberal socdems who will take up reading the Frankfurt School or Sartre because they think it makes them look more intelligent than the average American Democrat.
Say what you want about Billie misappropriating the anarchy symbol, but the song Le Temps Des Cerises would sound beautiful in her voice.
Someone should slide in her DMs and suggest it to her.
I'll do it once I post more anarchist art on my IG.
💯💯💯Yo belly eyelash 👁️👁️ She's just like me OMG 😍👌😍👌💦💦💦 I too love anarchist, how could she tell? 😤💧
We had a 500+ response thread exposing her a few months ago.
🅱️elly Eyelash: E X P 🅾️ S E D. How will 👩 live now? 😜😤😜😤
Nothing unusual since this brazilian model wore a bikini with che guevara on it. Communist and anarchist symbols are product of capitalism now, people don't know what they represent, they just wear because it's cool.
I mean, Urban Outfitters used to sell $40 made-in-Bangladesh keffiyehs back in 2009 when Palestine solidarity was "cool". All the hipster idiots wore them despite most of them probably not knowing how to spell "intifada".
This is what the scene was like outside the venue when she came to my city a few weeks ago.
Your average Billie Eilish fan is white and skinny with long hair, primarily shops at Forever 21, 16-years old, and female.
I feel like those artists are pop music taking over different kinds of indie music. Emo, Punk, any kind of alternative music has been transformed into shitty Pop music by now.
Losing You was the best of the 3, but even then it feels like a soulless knockoff of the 2000s indie pop scene. Are they boring because younger people don't learn instruments/music theory as much as they did before?
