In today's world, regardless you living in a capitalistic, socialistic, monarchial or dictatorial country, one thing is a constant. Money matters. So get off your high horse you latte sipping, entitled pampered liberal. Own the fact that money makes the world go round.
Understand that boycotts, when done properly, are one of the most effective way of getting your grievances out into the open and actually forcing your nemesis to acquiesce. The key portion is "done properly"
So allow me to introduce the #Dump initiative. Use the hashtag #Dump with the target of your ire. For example, I can't stand Starbuck's Coffee. Their holy than thou attitude towards Christians disgusts me. So obviously I personally don't go there - EVER. But I want to compound the economic impact cuz me $20 weekly coffee fix doesn't impact them in the slightest.
I turn to twitter and broadcast tweets with #DumpStarbucks in them. Its a rally cry. Sure I could use #BoycottStarbucks (and sometimes add that as well) but it requires 3 additional characters which come at a premium when tweeting. Besides, the word DUMP is much more evocative and conjures the funny image of someone squatting over and defecating on the target of your wrath.
What say you? Do you support the effort to make the mega-corporations bend to your will. If so sign this petition and spread the word. Make your voice heard regardless your political leanings. May the best man, women, non-gender or whatever the hell you fancy yourself, win.
