50 Ways to Starve the Beast
Daisy Luther  

The system now consists of the government and all aspects of Big Business. Big Agri, Big Pharma, Big Medicine, Big Food, Big Banking and Big Oil, to name a few. It seems that now it’s the Beast doing the starving, as small businesses close because they can’t compete with PLUTONOMY , the family farm is on its way out because it can’t compete with the huge, subsidized GMO mega-farms, people are going bankrupt because they can’t pay the outrageous medical bills… 
Perhaps it’s time for another financial revolution – one where people group together and use the power of the boycott to starve all the arms of this Beast that would swallow us whole. 
If we vote with our currency, eventually there will, from necessity, be a paradigm shift that returns us to simpler days, when families that were willing to work hard could make a living without selling their souls to the corporate monoliths | CORPORATOCRAZY
