Girl gets anti-capitalist note instead of iPod for Christmas

Her father got the iPod from Wal-Mart and it wasn't the only iPod that was replaced with a note:

A little girl thought she was getting an iPod for Christmas but ended up getting a rude surprise. She got the box but when she opened it up, she found a surprising switch: the iPod had been replaced with a bizarre note.

The note reads in part "Reclaim your mind from the media shackles."
The whole note:
Reclaim your mind from the media shackles. Read a book and resurrect yourself. To claim your capitalistic garbage go to your nearest Apple Store.
How arrogant of this person to think that their note would have any impact at all. Why does he/she think that their own mind is free? Isn't she/he imprisoned by their own hatred of capitalism or consumerism that they would steal an iPod to make a point? That they would steal the joy away from a child's Christmas morning. How sick is that?
