Today was May Day, the international worker's holiday that people in the US don't celebrate. I didn't really pay too much mind to this until the square outside my office start filling with people around 11AM. Apparently, the house with the red door across from my office is the Marx Memorial Library and hosts the start of the annual May Day march each year. So all of us marketing geniuses, engineering new and more ridiculous ways to further capitalism, stood on the balconies and watched communists and socialists from all over London and the world fight for their belief in a communal society. While annoying, loud, and strange (there was someone dressed as a tree), I was secretly happy to see people stand up for change.
