Countercultural capitalism

Over at Wallo World, Bill Wallo has reviewed Joseph Heath and Andrew Potter’s A Nation of Rebels. According to Bill the book makes a radical assertion: that the so-called counterculture is really not counter-cultural at all. Rather than trying to offer an alternative to consumer culture, so-called counter-cultural movements simply focus on consuming different things. That sounds right to me. Bill's review is worth reading, and it's made me want to read the book.
