Oh you could not be more wrong Simon. Hello Kitty is a martyr of Marxism-Leninism and strives to perpetuate socialist revolution. The red hair bow is symbollic of the blood of the prolitariet and the violent conflict that is required to create a classless society. Her lifeless eyes epitomize that suffering of the people under the yoke of the capitalist oppressors. The fact that she is a product of Sanrio, a tool of the state and symbolic the reactionary-military-capitalist nexus is even more fitting. Afterall, it was Lenin who said the capitalists would sell us the rope with which to hang them with.posted by: Jing on 09.23.05 at 09:56 PM [permalink]
