[Editor: Do you go to Starbucks? You're supporting the left. Go to Home Depot? Target? Costco? Owned by a leftist. Progressive Insurance? Yep. Research who you do business with and STOP paying them to defeat you!]
Lately I’ve been looking at Organic Opposition instead of Organizational Opposition. The latter is still important, but people are rightly disappointed and angry with everything from the GOP to assorted national groups and bewildered by a wide array of candidates.
Organic Opposition doesn’t require organizations or a movement. It’s about living in ways that naturally oppose the left.
Most of the people here already live in ways that the left resents without even thinking about it. Organic Opposition is about finding new ways to oppose the power of the left in your life.
This is not a complete checklist. It’s a set of general ideas and people are welcome to add to them in the comments.
5. Don’t Give Money to People Who Hate You
Imagine meeting an actor or a CEO, and telling him your political views and envision his response to them. If you can see his lip stretching into a sneer or a spittle-flecked rant as he orders security to throw you out, you really shouldn’t be giving him your money.
That doesn’t mean that you should lose out, but there are ways that you stop rewarding people who hate you.
For example, when buying new books, you are helping that writer and his publishers. If you don’t support the writer, save money and buy the books used. It’s easy to find most of the books you want in good condition for a fraction of the price on sites like Alibris.
Buying new books should be reserved for writers you support. Do look into writers on our side, like Edward Cline, if you like mysteries or Peter Grant, look at if you like Science Fiction, look at the projects that Adam Baldwin is involved in, and if you really must have that Stephen King or John Grisham novel, buy it used. You’re not just saving money, you’re denying income to people who hate you.
I know that conservatives don’t like doing this. I don’t like doing this. But the left does this and it works. Look at the politics of the writers, actors and directors you support. That doesn’t necessarily mean only reading only those writers you agree with, but a reasonable acid test is decency.
Decency, for example, means standing up for basic freedoms. People who are on the political left can do that and when they do it, they should be rewarded for it. When Patrick Stewart recently said that a bakery should not be compelled into writing a pro-gay marriage message on a wedding cake, that was a rejection of the totalitarian norms being imposed by social justice warriors.
People who hate you don’t want you to be able to live in peace. That’s the essence of the SJW.
Those who take a stand against them on an issue, even if they’re on the left, should get some support and a note or tweet telling them why. Likewise those who make the wrong choices should be told that from now on that even if you buy anything they make money from, you’ll do it in a way that they won’t see any proceeds from it. That will make them angrier than a straight boycott would.
