China:

Conquered Hong Kong by force and completely occupied the West Philippine Sea through shear military force, harassing and depriving the Filipino fishermen of their livelihood.

Can we start a boycott thread? We keep giving money to these companies who don’t only not care about staying out of politics but appease and normalize a small vocal minority.

Can we start a list with some decent alternatives?

  • CNN
  • Nike
  • Adidas
  • Sony
  • NFL
  • NBA
  • MLB
  • Google
  • Disney
  • McDonalds
  • Chase
  • Reddit (LOL)
  • coke

This list could go on and the alternatives might not be better but the point should be to drive down their business so the other isle is heard. A bunch of kids in Wall Street bets took on the hedge funds.

I think If organized right, planned a day to boycott and to continue that day forward, the momentum could build.

ie) say Disney plus for example, we gain traction in the community and set a date to cancel ESPN, Disney, Netflix etc.. the cancel requests hitting their servers will be overwhelming. It will cause panic in the companies. Especially a week or so before earnings calls. When they have to report active users month to month to their investors.

Or in banking, credit card companies make their money buy you using their card at merchants. Now American Express, discover, visa, master card are pretty much our only options. So either use cash or cryptocurrency. I know this one is a little more difficult because of the options but it hits the companies twice as hard because they have servers running that are mostly on premises for the most part. So they are burning electricity running ( not as much as if they had processes to transact, but still enough) while not being able to charge their processing fee to the merchant. Usually 1.2% to 3% per transaction.

Anyways
