79. boycotts a step in the right direction
Any conscious effort toward peace, or against corporate greed is helpful. However, the bigger the group that is willing to boycott, the more powerful the effort is. Some of these corporations are so gigantic that they can stay in business with huge losses- so it's not my expectation that a boycott will take a giant down. But putting money into the smaller fish would have to help them, wouldn't it?
