in practice, there’s no big difference among the players. They ALL do that. There’s next to no genuine cultural variety. They all use the same hardware, slogans and techniques.

I liked it better during the 2010s, when the transnational monoculture was about edison bulbs and reclaimed wood tables and Instagrammable coffee instead of fascism.
