So is the spirit of rebellion alive and well?

“Of course. It’s more powerful than ever,” insists Penny. “There will always be those that say, ‘No, I’m not going to stand for this shit’… I’ve always loved skateboarders for that. They’ve turned the urban landscape into a playground; it’s become their mountain, or beach. And that undermines authority in a way that no amount of political rhetoric will, or can, undermine it… Everyone can do that sort of slipping the system. That’s where it starts. And it should be a game.”
