The Pirate Bay: Museum piece - April 16, 2009

Democratic cultures, particularly capitalist ones, have a way of eventually taming their own counter-culture impulses. Often it's accomplished by commodifying those impulses and absorbing them into the broader, rationalized market culture. Witness the marketing and exploitation of 60's iconography in the U.S., from selling CBGB T-shirts at Wal-Mart to Dennis Hopper shilling for investment services in TV commercials. Other times, those impulses are turned into objects of respectable scientific or academic inquiry and embedded into official cultural institutions supported by the government or corporate largesse.
