Meaning the Seattle strategy that gets a lot of attention here of privileged yuppies doing things like eating organic and supporting local boutique businesses as social activism. There are quite a few folks in Seattle who, while leading lives that are excessive in their privilege, think that they're great supporters of social change because they've done a few token gestures with their money. These actions help them feel better about themselves, think that they're great people because of it, despite the fact that at the end of the day when it comes to their actions' impact on real social change, especially social change having to do with inequality and social justice, their actions have almost no impact.
