Re: Rage Against the Machine
On an individual level of course it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, but this was people interfering with the X-factor message. It's nothing to do with money, Simon Cowell doesn't need any more and I'm sure 400,000 digital downloads is a pittance to him. No, this was the first big threat to his cultural monopoly, the silent majority getting together to say that no, they won't buy what you tell them. Very satisfying.
