When I mentioned boycotting Disney and did not mention that it might be hard to boycott an energy company, I took it as a given that you could not boycott you energy company without consequence's and people would just understand that.

Boy, was I wrong. So I will reference you to a post here on ATS about the new Tesla Powerwall which if true will make power company's obsolete.

THEY ! only have us by the short ones if we allow it.

No, it won't make power companies obsolete, they will simply become tax collectors/brokers for the government. Look at solar roof panels, for example, many local governments are now taxing people for installing them because they reduce dependence on local utilities. Installing equipment like the Powerwall, isn't going to change a thing because it too will drive down privatized revenue being collected by the contract companies hired to run the utilities and government, in turn, will have to come up with solutions to stop it at the behest of big business.

You didn't understand my post it seems. Disney doesn't need your money, no do they need you to actively spend it at the parks they make more money off foreigners on vacation. That's one reason why they keep increasing the prices of park tickets, it keeps local Riff-Raff out of the parks. As for other revenue streams, companies lie Disney get cuts of everyone cable bill, so as long as someone is paying for cable, they are essentially still paying them, even if they aren't actively using or requesting the product. Also don't for get the tax breaks they get for building things, which are subsidized by your tax dollars. Companies learned DECADES ago how to stop smear campaigns and boycotts.

Mark my words, the next move of big business and government is to legislate mandatory purchases. Its a win/win for the "owners of capital" because their revenues will increase, due to the mandatory purchases, yet these "legislated purchases" won't really cost much to them on and individual scale and will not hurt their personal finances in anyway due to their vast riches.

The only choice left is to start "roughing up" those causing the most damage to the lower classes, ON AN INDIVIDUAL SCALE and that means grabbing a CEO out of his car in the parking lot or massive crowds showing up at their personal homes on a Sunday afternoon.

First off I have no clue about your post, I was responding to the OP.

Second, what you said in your last paragraph ruined anything else you had to say, I could not disagree more, I'm surprised that statement about violence got past the mods.

Then you need to start following and reading threads in their entirety. Haphazardly jumping in with no point of reference, serves no purpose in these kinds of discussions.

What other passive solutions do you have in mind? I don't see any of those kinds of ideas working currently. "Roughing up" doesn't always equal "violence". For example, if massive amounts of people are blocking the driveway of a Robber Barron CEO's home, how can he get to work then? Or getting a bucket of oil thrown on him/her while in their work suit everyday, for months. Sorry to have ruined your optimism with a dose of reality.

Here's a little more reality for you, maybe it will bring people like yourself to real action that does NOT revolve around pow-wows and sit-ins:

Consumers will not have choices in the future because purchases will be mandatory in some way. "Click-Wrap Agreements" will make that transition easier for the "Owners of Capital" to force on the general populace.

Policies structured like Obamacare should have taught us ALL how these kinds of scenarios will play out. Obamacare is merely the test run of how to implement legislated purchases on a large scale. "Click-Wrap Agreements" will only strengthen similar policies in the future.

What do I mean exactly?

Many forget that we now live in what "could" be considered a fascist country, with oligopolies running it behind the scenes. What usually results, is a situation where the "owners of capital", can and will "legislate" mandatory purchases in the future, if revenue does not match their expectations or projections (for the good of the nation of course, i.e., Too-Big-to-Fail). So for example, if someone chooses not to buy unneeded goods or services, they will simply pay a "penalty" at tax time.

When the "owners of capital" run out of consumer goods that they can "strongly coerce" people to buy, in order to go to work, such as, gasoline, internet connection, car insurance, bus/subway fare, cell phones, suits/uniforms, soap, deodorant, razors, etc. One day they will simply make it law that you have to buy them, in certain quantities before tax season (the current Healthcare dependent, Flexible Spending Account, FSA, is just the pilot program, one day we will have an FSA for ALL goods and services, and you can bet they will be use-it or lose-it accounts).

You will not be allowed to be frugal in the future because the "owners of capital" will take close to the same amount back, when a person tries to save money by reducing purchases, in the form of "tax penalties" or other method (cashless, digital currency, deductions from bank accounts whenever the "owners of capital" see fit). A cashless society, dominated by "click-wrap agreements" is the easiest way to structure "forced purchases" into the larger economy. In the future when someone chooses "not to buy" and then doesn't have the proper "proof of purchase" coupon, etc, to prove they bought these items, in the required quantities, when tax fillings come due, the IRS will have some way to calculate the amount "you should have purchased" (sounds a little like a college FASFA in reverse doesn't it).

Again, look at solar roof panels, for example, many local governments are taxing people for installing them because they reduce dependence on local utilities, which in turn drive down privatized revenue being collected by the contract companies hired running the utilities.

I choose to not trust the intentions of corporations, AT ALL TIMES. The tech being created today is merely a tool of the "Owners of Capital" to oppress regular people. IN THE NEAR FUTURE, tech will absolutely be designed and bound to do the bidding of corporations and to enforce the will of government. It will not be independent of the real "owners of capital", by any stretch of the imagination. Currently, people falsely believe tech will save and unite them, when in reality it was designed by "corporate committee" to do just the opposite. The only way to prevent that shift, is to not buy such tech, oppose the development of said tech and discourage others from buying and using it, even if it means using force.

Note, I said OWNERS, not "creators", "purchasers" or "users".
