How can DIY *not* be a political act?

Alternet can't figure out if DIY is a political act or just more conspicuous consumption. Note to editors: there is no way that making something for yourself, as opposed to buying it, can fail to be a political act.

As someone who has been teaching people how to make things for themselves for almost 40 years, I can say with reasonable certainty that Making is better than buying.

Here endeth the lesson: Selah.
