The Boycott is a Bourgeois Form of Protest

Use the system. Use it like a whore. Take what you want from it and leave the rest for the rats.

And what’s more — instead of boycotting, turn the whole thing around. Don’t worry about withholding money from the people you don’t like. Concentrate on putting resources into the hands of people doing things you enjoy or believe in. Don’t go out of your way to avoid buying something from a company you hate. Go out of your way to buy something from a company you like. - - Jack Donovan

Your Say

Well, yeah.

This is sort of common sense, logical, no?

Why would anyone have any contact at all with entities they don't like?

Oh silly me, there I go being judgmental again.

"....then why reduce your protest of modernity to a financial transaction?"

Because of a little thing called *principle*.

I will not facilitate an entity in fucking me over and I don't care one iota what other people think or do in this regard.

We all get to drive our own custom made rocket sled to hell as we each see fit and I prefer mine fast and screamin' hot.

Modern economics- the unwanted stepchild of Political Science.

Yeah, I'm spending more of the cash, I get from your labor, on inferior "stuff", because "we" were told that EVERYONE KNOWS "they" aren't doing their "fair" share.
It's for "our" children's future.

If they did it Donovan's way the TV news crews would stay home. Attention whores don't like it when news crews stay home.
