@esther@101010.pl I guess I was thinking more about the cultural than the political-economic, and probably with a bias towards domestic culture in Aotearoa, rather than any "global" culture (the scare quotes are a disclaimer that the English language slice of the net is the only way I have meaningful access to anything global). I'm both aware of the power of framing to tilt collective behaviour, and sceptical of the notion that changing the frame is, in itself, powerful enough to change global outcomes.

Subcultures once seemed like a way to do that. This piece sums up why that no longer seems viable:
