I'm sure you've heard of these smelly hippies who have good jobs and can afford a comfortable life, but choose to dig through garbage in New York looking for food to eat. Across the pond, the TimesOnline chooses to characterize this lifestyle as a necessity in an America on the brink of collapse.....
Soaring food prices have led to a growing number of middle-class New Yorkers joining an unusual organisation that “dumpster dives” in rubbish bins for food.
The trash tours form part of a growing movement called “Freegans”, which is rapidly increasing in popularity as New Yorkers find it harder and harder to make ends meet.
Using perverse liberal logic only they understand, scrounging through dumpsters and eating the food that rats and roaches were just eating, is somehow romantic. The Eurotrash media seem to delight in the idea, though wrong, that America is struggeling to the point that we've been reduced to eating garbage. They don't acknowledge that these stupid hippies just like dressing up and pretending to be vagrants, degenerates, and shiftless bums.
