24. In the remote event humanity survives, future fashon will laugh at neckties - and at
nylon stockings, and at contemporary "business" garb in general. They will look through fashon history with amused wonder at our Corporate Masters throttling themselves in 100 F weather in Washington with ties and suit jackets and encasing themselves in hot nylon from waist to toe. They will wince with sympathy at the multitude of drones forced to follow their Masters in such repressive, impractical, all-weather uncomfortable uniform.

People who do the real work of the world don't, for the most part, wear neck-ties. Health Aides. Nurses. Teachers. Carpenters. Road builders. Farmers.

(none of which has anything to with Iran or Ahmedinijad of course, or what I think about either. I just think one should always take a critical look at the conventional, since it is so often a guise for wielding power - or the aspiration to do so. Or it masks an uncritical deference to power - like the notion that the furniture in the WH somehow deserves the "respect" of closed rather than open shoes.)
