16. Yet another way to look at it....
We are always being told that our vote counts, our one little vote, and if we don't vote we are betraying our democracy. How would boycotting be any different? When we buy a CD of our favorite musician/musical group, in a sense we are voting for them, if for no other reason than they will continue to make music for us to enjoy.
