Stop Giving THESE Corporations Power

People have a tendency to accept hopelessness and helplessness. What can I do? I don’t have any money to fix these problems—why should I bother?

The way we spend the limited money we do have actually has a much larger impact than we realize, and it is one of the main things we tend to forget we have control over. Instead of keeping ourselves informed, we are able to rest in the shadows of ignorance, the shadows cast upon by the ever-present corporations that own our lives.

Every time you buy from a company that tests on animals, you contribute to the problem.

Every time you support an industry that produces tons of waste every day, you contribute to the problem.

Every time you support a company that exploits workers and resources from developing countries, you contribute to the problem.

Every time you go to eat at a place that donates to anti-LGBT groups (in which promote conversion therapy), you contribute to the problem.

Every time you order from companies that underpay their workers, you contribute to the problem.

Every time you boycott one product to run to another that is equally toxic and unharmful to the environment, you contribute to the problem.

Every time you brush off these statements and continue to support people who don’t give a damn about you, you contribute to the problem.

This is a short post, but I really would like to see people caring about where their money is going. With every dollar you give to any of these monopolizing industries (like the ten companies running the food industry), the more power you are giving them. We give them power to destroy our planet, to rob us blind, ultimately aiding them in their negligence. Our contributions to their success only make them less and less likely to do anything about the problems they cause. You do have the money, time, and power to subdue and eliminate their impact. At this point, it is only a matter if you care or not.
