Who burned cigarette holes in their arms protesting the narcotic tobacco haze of Capitalism,

A statement on the hypocrisy of people protesting Capitalism. They decry it, but support it by being a part of the cyclical system of consumerism, and so in effect, are just hurting themselves by the same thing they are lambasting.
