i am sharing my life with you in the hopes that you might share your life with me.

Further, though, the TOMS campaign — like the million shirts — misses the fundamental point that not having a pair of shoes (or a shirt, christmas toy, etc.) is not a problem about not having shoes. It’s a problem of poverty. Shoelessness, such as it is, is a symptom of a much bigger and more complex problem. And while donating a pair of shoes helps shoelessness, it does not help poverty.

Things like jobs help poverty. Jobs making things like shoes, for example. But TOMS doesn’t make its shoes in Africa, it makes them in China where it’s presumably cheaper to make two pairs of shoes and give one away than it is to get people in a needier community to make one pair of shoes.

The result of this setup, as Zizek explains most succinctly, is that on a big-picture level, TOMS (and other buy-my-product-and-donate companies) are busy building the exploitative global structure that produces economic inequality, while on the other hand pretending that supporting them actually does something to fix it.

It doesn’t. It just gives people shoes.

Short Term 12 (2013) Destin Cretton

You want to hear a story i’ve been working on?
"Once upon a time, somewhere miles and miles beneath the surface of the ocean, there lived a young octopus named Nina. Nina spent most of her time alone making strange creations out of rocks and shells. And she was very happy. But then on Monday the shark showed up. "What’s your name?" said the shark. "Nina", she replied. "Do you want to be my friend?" he asked. "Ok. What do I have to do?" said Nina. "Not much" said the shark, "just let me eat one of your arms". Nina had never had a friend before, so she wondered if this was what you had to do to get one. She looked down at her eight arms and decided it wouldn’t be so bad to give up one. So she donated an arm to her wonderful new friend. Every day that week, Nina and the shark would play together. They explored caves, built castles of sand, and swam really, really fast. And every night the shark would be hungry, and Nina would give him another one of her arms to eat. On Sunday, after playing all day, the shark told Nina that he was very hungry. "I don’t understand", she said, "Ive already given you six of my arms, and now you want one more?". The shark looked at her with a friendly smile and said, "I don’t want one. This time I want them all". "But why?" Nina asked. And the shark replied, "because that’s what friends are for". When the shark finished his meal, he felt very sad and lonely. He missed having someone to explore caves, build castles and swim really, really fast with. He missed Nina very much. So he swam away to find another friend."
