the rescue agency (collision_less)

tourism is the great soporific. it's a huge confidence trick, and gives people the dangerous idea that there's something interesting in their lives. It's musical chairs in reverse. Every time the muzak stops people stand up and dance around the world, and more chairs are added to the circle, more marinas and Marriott hotels, so everyone thinks they are wining.
today's tourist goes nowhere. all the upgrades in existence lead to the same airports and resort hotels. the tourists smile at their tans and their shiny teeth and think they are happy. but the suntans hide who they really are-salary slaves, with heads full of american rubbish. travel is the last fantasy of the 20th century left us:
the delusion that going somewhere helps you reinvent yourself
