Default Baileys Irish Cream: Capitalism/Fascism

Consumerism culture is modern and global and it speaks to a pedestrian interest in the streamlining of fashion and couture for shoppers interested in convenience and access (e.g., Amazon.com, Facebook, eTrade, Wal-Mart, etc.).

When we see the marketing of 'culture-centric' goods/items such as Baileys Irish Cream liqueur or Lucky Charms cereal or Thomas' English Muffins, we might discover a consumer demand for pedestrian lifestyle commodities that reflect a shopping interest in convenient access to 'worldly flair.'

So understanding how consumerism/capitalism might give rise to 'culture-exposure' through simple merchandising informs our evaluation of marketing-based networking (i.e., Wall Street).

Investigating this 'dominion' from a philosophical, political, or even legal standpoint can help us analyze the modern intelligible value of the international currency market (a 'thesaurus' for capitalism dogma if you will) among other things!


CONSUMER: I want to feel like I'm Irish!
MERCHANT: You'll love Baileys then...
CONSUMER: This is more expensive than I thought.
MERCHANT: Good taste is worth the cost.
CONSUMER: So now merchants sell 'taste.'
MERCHANT: It's all about aesthetics, no?
CONSUMER: I suppose Chinatown is aesthetics.
MERCHANT: Drink Baileys and you'll want to see Ireland.
CONSUMER: It's great I can purchase this in America!
MERCHANT: You can purchase Baileys online too.
CONSUMER: What will they think of next?
MERCHANT: Perhaps 'intellectual merchandise'...
CONSUMER: You sound like the Devil.
MERCHANT: I'm merely a 'leprechaun' (a critic)!

Lightbulb Addendum: Lucky Charms Breakfast Cereal

Lucky Charms is a brand of cereal produced by the General Mills food company since 1964.[1] The cereal consists of toasted oat pieces and multi-colored marshmallow shapes ("marbits" or marshmallow bits). The label features a leprechaun mascot, Lucky, animated in commercials (source of information: Wikipedia).

Capitalism is a form of resource aesthetics negotiation (e.g., NASDAQ), so we can see how/why a culture-centric brand such as Lucky Charms (obviously an allusion to the Irish leprechaun) would be considered some kind of homage or toast to the general 'creativity' of consumerism itself.

You might be served a bowl of Lucky Charms breakfast cereal by your hospitable stewardess on a KLM flight from Amsterdam to New York, which would motivate you to ask, "How do commercial contracts in the modern geopolitical landscape arise and how do these contracts complement tourism-gauged culture-exchange?"

Commerce offers us appreciation of goods and services, but it also creates social networking and hence culture-exchange (e.g., World Bank).

We should therefore contemplate how/why Lucky Charms breakfast cereal inspires in modern thinkers a contemplation of the contouring of culture-exposure with commercial ideology.


TRUMP: They should serve Lucky Charms in hotel continental breakfasts.
TRUMP: The Irish leprechaun (Lucky) mascot represents hospitality!
CARTER: Yes, commerce creates culture-exchange on many levels.
TRUMP: That is the 'spirit/ethos' behind the hospitality of Las Vegas.
CARTER: Capitalists care about self-consciousness...
TRUMP: Yes, they do, and checks-and-balances ensure improvements.
CARTER: However, Lucky Charms does not 'cure' racism...
TRUMP: No, people still consider it simply a 'consumer-brand.'
CARTER: That's unfortunate, since ethnic-mascots symbolize teamwork!
TRUMP: They sure do (e.g., sports-teams mascots), but it's a problem.
CARTER: Perhaps consumerism aesthetics can breed 'political trust.'
TRUMP: That's what happened during the 2018 Winter Olympics.
CARTER: Yes, North and South Korea were temporarily 'united' for media.
TRUMP: Let's consider why the European Union is capitalism-ideal...
CARTER: Well, the EU creates interesting 'terrorism dialogue.'
TRUMP: Yes, we can consider why commerce-pacts destroy rebellions.
