Since our votes are pretty meaningless, lost in the mass of fundies, mindless independents and propagandized letter-voters, what’s left to the citizen to fight against the corporate monster?
The problem is so deep that, frankly, there’s nothing we can realistically do.
I thought of the oldest and most direct recourse, the boycott… but alas.
It’s easy enough to find retailers that aren’t involved in campaign finance, lobbying and the like. Of course, you’d have to pay more.
But what do they sell? Easily 80% of their products are directly or indirectly owned by one of the corporate monsters. Indirectly, all the products have something to do with them, even if it’s just through being transported by trucks using corporate oil. No matter what we do we feed the monster.
What’s even worse is that we are paying for our own servitude.
So what can we do? Third Way “opposition” certainly is a misnomer. Voting for the lesser evil doesn’t do any good.
