The Shopolcalypse

Recommended Posts

Im sure many of you are familiar with Rev Billy and the Church of life after shopping.

I myself envisage a monumental resurgance of organised Religion in the Post-consumption based economy. The question is will Muslim groups throughout our cities, about the only large scale active religion in the UK capitalise on this, being, in theory at least, a peoples of modesty and thrift, or will flashly American entities such as this fill the void.

Here is Billy protesting the colonisation of another empty shop to into the unholy consumerist empire otherwise known as TESCO. FYI Cambridge area is ALREADY 4 large TESCO stores.

Billy's operations are Truly Global in scope.

The Spenglarian prediction is indeed that a new religion will fill the void left by the decline of western civilisation, but that it will most likely be a small cult at the present time (just as Christianity was at the time of the Roman empire).

So keep an eye on Jedi's, The Church of Elvis Presley etc.

Someone will make a lot of money thats for sure. We had Religion before the age of oil, and we will have it long after too.

On a serious note, religion does tend to do better in the absence of wealth.

I would say the Church is a Buy for the coming decades.

What 10 bedroom Vicarages with gardens and paddocks 'they' used to furnish themselves with?

With cook, maids, gardeners and carriage driver/groom?

Were people poorer and more downtrodden then?

Did they require hope - if not in this life, then the hereafter?

Given that oil will most likely be supplanted by solar power maybe we'll see a resurgence of sun worshippers?

I've certainly seen an increase in the citing of astrology as a valid investment tool recently.

Those people may be wrong, but they might be early adopters of a new zeitgeist too.

Could there be a dynamic new religion in the making right now, based on Jacko, or Jade - or both?

Jadaism? And the priests will be known as Flabbis.
