The State: Free Market Store

For those not fortunate enough to remember watching The State, it was a brilliant comedy show often surreal or scatalogicaly political. This skit rolls with a black comedy to match the best Monty Python, and gets the viewer with a brujtally funny depiction of Eastern Europe after the Iron Curtain fell. No doubt, the Soviet Union had some major problems, but it also gave people some options they lost when the free market bomb went off. This skit is like Disaster Capitalism distiled to a rueful, cynical chuckle.
