Last week I was complaining about how the corporate conglomerates of the world have such a strangle hold on the planet. Constantly complaining how much it costs to do business then rake in record profits. Meanwhile everyday people are struggling to get by. Working two and three jobs, if their lucky their children being raised by day care. If not children stay home without supervision raising themselves. Mean while the prison populations grow. Anyway, to my point, so after I was done ranting I was asked "whats your plan? How are you proposing to change it?" I had no answer at the time and felt awful about it. Then it hit me, what keeps these corporate behemoth's alive? Money! People need to quit buying, maybe for a whole week. Occupy had little affect because as protesters were sleeping the park, Richie Rich is sleeping his penthouse without a care in the world. I believe not a boycott but just a general don't buy would get their attention better. We pay them, they need us. Example: You have a parade float, big one. Carrying 100 of the countries wealthiest people. This float is being pulled by 200 million people. The 200 million are fed just enough to keep them pulling. WHY WOULDN'T THOSE 200 MILLION PEOPLE JUST TURN AROUND AND SHOW THE 100 THAT THEY ARE THE ONES PULLING, DOING MOST OF THE WORK AND DEMAND FAIR TREATMENT OR THEY ARE NOT PULLING ANYMORE! Whether the 100 listen or not their free ride ends. We need not even get into why hundreds of millions of people would willingly put themselves in such bondage when they actually hold the power. I hope this makes sense and respectively I say, just think about it.
