I agree. This is a pretty large scale attack on american citizens. I think you make good points about the decisions people are forced to make.
But in a way I think that admission speaks to the inefficiencies of previous strategies. Calls for boycott’s and protests. Not that I don’t think those are useful. They are, but they are limited.
Every protest I can remember goes like this… grass movement starts. someone pays provocateurs to act like shitheads. Press gives bad wrap. For like 50 years now. for christ’s sake, change your tactics.
And boycotting… again, this worked great for David Hogg but to the point that I’m agreeing about difficult decisions Walmart illustrates this perfectly in that poor consumers don’t really have the option to boycott walmart because by this point in time walmart has undercut all the competition furthering their grip.
And ok, some sacrifices do have to be made but how does the average citizen go about boycotting boeing? or lockheed martin? or raytheon? or KBR?
I am not asking you directly, I’m just thinking out loud I guess. I suppose the point I am getting at though is american citizens need to start fighting back. with something more tangible than protests and boycotts.
This company doesn’t deserve to be boycotted and harmed. It deserves to be put out of business.
It deserves the antitrust laws be enacted, be broken off and sold to smaller responsible companies
but who in their right mind thinks that is going to happen?
We are watching these very agencies be dissolved by selective incompetence.
so like i said. maybe when the american citizens fight back.
