Hypocritical Hippies

There's only one thing you need to know about Whole Foods Market: It sells animal products, including meat. All the other stuff—organic foods, locally grown fruits and vegetables, environmentally friendly bags—is about status. Isn't it ironic that old hippies, who rejected the "establishment," have become status-seekers? The only difference between them and the "establishment" they once deplored is that they find status in different places. The old hippies who patronize Whole Foods Market don't give a damn about animals. If they did, they'd boycott the place.
