- Girl writes blog about surviving on cheap food; which in the UK necessarily means discounted supermarket food.
- Blog becomes popular, which is normal given the perpetual recession.
- Girl makes ads for supermarket.
- Girl is accused of selling out.
Accused by whom? By those in the environment to which she is supposed to belong? The left? A left committed to keeping people in poverty? How can feeding your kid and progress be bad?
Have new sins (selling out) simply replaced the old ones? Stay virtuous and starve.
The very real shortcomings of capitalism cannot be resolved from this corner of intransigence.
