no matter how justified it may seem, its best to remain calm so as to not miss subtle points along the way.
dont get angry, get even, as they say. Adn that takes careful planning. And careful planning takes a calm mind.

I did an excercise in 03 when bush started his little iraq war; I went one year trying to radically limit my petrol usage. I stopped driving everything but my greasel truck. I stopped buying food from more than a hundred miles away. I didnt use things made of petrol like computers or buy new 'stuff'. And while i held no illusions that i made any impact in their bottom line, it did teach me just how much we ALL rely upon their product. It also helped that i lived on about 5000 dollars a year. That'll limit anyone's needless expenses.
"They" will stop being powerful when 'we' stop giving them our money. Plus, its empowering to take control for yourself and learn to make, grow, scavenge the things you need.
