Turn a blind eye to the companies that outsource jobs or make faulty products or lie and commit fraud. Stop buying from them.
Small and moderate sized businesses for the most part do not outsource jobs, or have a serious hand in politics.
These big corporations only have power because you keep buying thier products and services. Putting money in their pockets.
Stop using banks, buying from large convenience stores or electronics stores (ect). You can get the same products from a small or moderate sized reputable business. It may cost more at first but in the end it is worth it.
Once big corporations start losing money they will change or go out of business. If you start buying local, small or moderate, honest, you will see a change. You will make a change.
The 99% control the wealth of the 1%. The 1% make their money mainly off the 99%. The 99% can change who gets their money just by the decision of where to buy what. That is where it starts.
Wouldn't you want your money to go to someone starting a small business rather than someone dominating the market anyway?
There are so many benifits to buying small and local also;
It creates more competition within the industry, that drives down prices and stops market dominators from controlling the cost of a good.
It does create more jobs. It also inspires more people to take their skills and put them to use in their own business, because they know people will back them and they will stand a chance against the larger companies.
You are the beginning of the cash flow. You have the responsiblity to make wise choices with your purchases to better impact the world.
