In repsonse to a condescending comment

It has come to this blog's authors' notice that someone had commented the following about our site: "Your obssesion with capitalism is diabolic."
From dictionary.com:
Diabolic:
Of, concerning, or characteristic of the devil; satanic.
Appropriate to a devil, especially in degree of wickedness or cruelty.
This comment is rude and just shows what how close-minded some people are. We would like to respond the following points:
  • Capitalism is one of the most important basis that most societies nowadays are built on. If you can't accept capitalism, then you are welcome to continue to hide in your hermit lair, or even better, move to a socialist country like North Korea.
  • Retail industry is one of the most important industry in the economy. A huge percentage of the people employed works in the retail industry, and without it, well, you can imagine how high the unemployment rate would be. The same applies to the fashion and beauty industry.
  • Having suffered from the Asian Financial Crisis, Hong Kong has finally been making steady economic recovery thanks to the Chinese government relaxing polocies so more mainland Chinese can go to Hong Kong to shop! (Mainland Chinese love to go to Hong Kong to buy gold, jewelery, cosmetics and fashion etc.)
  • China, the center of socialism, wouldn't be the biggest rising economic power in the world if they hadn't opened up to capitalism. With their open market policies, they have attracted many foreign investments to manufacture there, like Gucci, Levi's and IBM to name a few.
  • And if after so many points, you still cannot accept capitalism in our world, then you are welcome to stop shopping and share your possessions like socialists do. But we sincerely hope that you will embrace the modern framework of our society and join us in the twenty first century.
  • Most importantly everyone has different interests and hobbies, fashion just happens to be ours. And this blog should not be taken to reflect the society as a whole.

And to end this on a light note, we would like to remind you all that we still LOVE getting comments *hint hint* (and yes, we are both studying economics related courses)!

Love,

Barneys Girl and Harrods Girl

Manolo says, you tell him! You are not obsessed with the capitalism. You, like the Manolo, are obsessed with the fashion.

This person, may they be condemned to spend their joyless life wearing the shapeless Mao suit.

Muchos Besos!

I've always thought that if you don't like someone elses blog, then it's simple, just don't go back there and read it anymore. I'm so glad that people are different, how boring this world would be if everyone was the same.

It amazes me that some people take all that effort just to tell you that they don't like something about your site. You have to wonder if they simply have nothing better to do? I would be interested in learning more about what you are studying... sounds fascinating.

Whoohoo! Way to go! *cheering* Good for you! I don't understand why people who AREN'T interested in reading a particular blog DO. Couldn't you just keep going? But I do hope this person came back to read this and thought twice. And how come you didn't tell me you guys were so cute? Love the flowers and the hair color :)

Ok, I can't say I find this blog diabolic or capitalistic. However your comments about *that* comment are a bit strange. If you take time to find out how those big corporations are acting in for eg. China I don't think you would find it all as great. They are doing a lot of harm to the environment and to the people there. They pay low wages and many are forbidding unions and they let children work. Is THAT good??? In India Coca Cola have taken so much water for their production that there is no water for the locals, is that right? Hell no!

I love clothes and fashion but I'd never ever buy from a company who is not a good one. Takes a bit of effort but I find it is worth it.

Keep on your with fun and amusing blog, I really enjoy it. Thanks
