Why do most people dress today like the modern version of the Marxist proletariat and/or the unisex attire that was prevalent under Chairman Mao when the object was egalitarianism or “sameness.”
The answer is that the West (in particular) is now, for the most part, Socialist/Communist having been infiltrated by cultural Marxists for years.
This cultural Marxism is now endemic in virtually every strata of society e.g Education, Politics (most Parties have swung to the Left to some degree) Industry, Music, Churches (many churches now espouse Liberation Theology which is really Religious Communism) Morality and Dress.
Clothing is a language and says a lot about the wearer (note the Shakespearean quote in our title.) The clothing worn by the majority today communicates rebellion, defiance, androgyny and ugliness.
Torn jeans and trousers, “hoodies,” trainers, the revealing attire of the harlot, body piercings and tattoos, these are the fashions of choice for millions. Sadly, many Evangelical Christians dress just like the world and there is nothing to distinguish many Christian young people from their non-Christian counterparts (although we hope that young Christians would draw the line at tattoos and body piercings.)
