|Fight Corporatocracy - Live Simply|
A lot are answering, "No. This is insanity," and then are responding by joining the voluntary simplicity movement.
I admire those who are in the streets, camps, and protests on the front line of what may be our final battle to save not only our planet, but also our collective peace of mind. Although marching in the streets is an important part of resistance, it has to be accompanied by personal changes at home.
The problem with relying on confrontation for instigating change is that our government sponsored corporatocracy is prepared for physical resistance.
The oligarchy of corporate elites, through the manipulation of democracy, know that any physical presence, confrontation, or encampment against them can be swiftly, and 'lawfully' brought to a screeching halt.
How we think and live, though, can not currently be controlled by corporations or corrupt governments. We can still choose not to participate in their harmful practices, as difficult as this may seem at first.
There are currently no laws against growing a garden, or bartering, trading, and sharing with neighbours. Nothing mandates that we must purchase things we don't need, or work at jobs that contribute to social and environmental injustice. We can choose abundance over scarcity, go off-grid, and generate our own solar power.
This is what they are really afraid will happen - that the simplicity movement will reach critical mass, as more and more people start thinking for themselves, and choosing to live more freely and independently with less.
No one will come to arrest you for choosing to live a sustainable, simple life, even though it is more radical and effective in disabling the corporatocracy than throwing a rock through the window of a bank.
