    Is this a subtle allusion to the state of American education? ;)

    Nooooo. In the 1970's Leif Garrett conquered the Americas. This is some grueling imagery. Trigger, spoiler and disco light alert!

    Greed and stupidity have always walked hand in hand. And if we let them rule the day, as we are currently doing, we will inevitably end up not only looking like fools, but dangerous, destructive, nihilistic fools. Because that's what we ARE when we allow our greed and stupidity to rule us.

    But the rest of the world better check their laughter, because they're following us right on down the same road to ruin. Capitalism has poisoned the whole planet. As capitalism IS greed and stupidity run amok.
