The End of the Alternative Media

Village Voice

Today, we are the alternative media because we are the alternative to the alternative that has become the new norm. Their norm is the alternative, while our alternative is the norm. There is no longer any place for a leftist alternative media because it is no longer an alternative to anything. Only we are the alternative.

We are the ones standing aside while the herd rushes over the cliff. We are the ones who see what they cannot see, because we are outside their culture and their world. We lack their fears, their anxieties, their guilts and their insecurities. We are not afraid that the world is about to end, the poles about to melt, we are not terrified that we are secretly racist, that we lack racial consciousness, that we are not afraid enough, that we have still not learned the meaning of life in the back of the self-help section or gotten real enough. We are not worried about being cliches or losing our souls to corporate America, and we do not wake up in the middle of the night wondering who we are.

We are the alternative that they have left behind but cannot escape. We are the alternative to the endless alternative, the alternative to national guilt, national suicide and national armageddon. We are the rebels who rebel against the rebels, the counterrevolution to the revolution, the people, who, when the noise has grown loud enough and there are fires in the streets, step out and show a better way.

  1. Anonymous says:

    A little repetitive here and there, but great imagery. Very powerful. My favorite line is, "..a new bar where people drink the tears of Ecuadoran children purchased through fair trade while looking at themselves doing it in video monitors as an artistic commentary on capitalism."

  2. Let's hope many morally decent advertisers stayed away from The Village Voice's because:

    – The Voice rakes in $25 million/year from its erotic ads.

    – Tracking Village Voice sex ads has led to 150 ARRESTS for juvenile sex trafficking.

    – Village Voice is paying sleaze-ball lawyers to fight laws in Washington State and Tennessee that would outlaw sex ads for minors.

    Here's a Huffington Post story by an author who runs shelters for homeless young people and deals with the psychological and physical horrors of human sex trafficking:
