We Are All Prostitutes Once Again

Oh, to be in England now the Pop Group's back... EoR still has his 45rpm single of We Are All Prostitutes (backed with a reading taken from the Amnesty International Report on British Army Torture of Irish Prisoners) — a jazz punk tirade against capitalism and the self-delusion of those attacking it. Given that we now live in a post-capitalist consumer society, the lyrics are still relevant (especially to those following the precepts of The Power):

Everyone has their price
And you too will learn to live the lie
Consumer fascism
Capitalism is the most barbaric of all religions
Department stores are our new cathedrals
Our cars are martyrs to the cause
We are all prostitutes

at this moment despair ends and tactics begin.
