The way I see it, the crowd is (by definition) average. Why aspire to be
more average. Be extra-ordinary; it makes for a better epitaph.
With enough volume I think this is viable but fetishists usually tend to be a fairly small crowd. Volume makes things a lot easier in sales. If your goal was $100,000 a year to live then you'd have to sell 400$ worth of goods to 2,500 fetishists or 1$ worth of goods to 100,000 people. Given how the numbers turn out appealing to volume is always much much easier. Ideally I think being extraordinary is a great thing and a goal to strive for but you gotta draw the line somewhere when you need to pay for rent and food. Maybe getting established under the volume aspect then parlaying that money to fetish goods will work if you really want to sell to a particular group.
By the way, what is it you're trying to get in touch with the crowd for?
Do you own a business marketing to them or something like that, or is
it just for knowledge?
If you want the short answer - I want to quit my job one day and be financially independent :). Long answer: Basically it's because we're all interconnected and we are mututally dependent on each other's support. I disagree with pop culture sometimes but they grow our food, fix our cars, make our goods, run our services, etc... As is the case with all island economies today they just can't go at it on their own. We all need each other to get ourselves where we want to go. Consequently for example if they are adultering food in China it affects us because we no longer have the farming capacity to feed our own population in the US so we import a lot of food from other coutnries. If there is social unrest and poverty/injustice in the middle east we will always have a terror threat from dissatisfied individuals who see us as their problem. Until the whole world is uplifted the ignored portions will eventually drag us all back down until we fix them. You can't be happy being rich if everyone around you is poor and constantly trying to steal from you. Only when we get everyone to a similar level can we have true peace.
