Not using Google or walking away from the NFL or avoiding Hollywood’s leftist insults like Star Wars is a way to take money out of the Left’s pocket. But let’s face it, there are plenty of other people that are lined up to spend their cash on those things. So, we’re not going to topple any of those behemoths anytime soon.
But what it does do is create demand and available cash for alternatives on the Right that either currently exist or should be created now. Take Google. Other options already exist. DuckDuckGo and Brave already exists and can be used as your browser without any loss of functionality. Is Google faster or more comprehensive? Maybe but who cares? Am I splitting the atom and need the cutting edge of technology to check on the weather? But DuckDuckGo and Brave don’t track my every move and don’t sell my information.
As far as professional sports go, I have now finished with all of them. They can kneel and grovel to whomever they want. I won’t be seeing another minute of the NFL, MLB or the NBA until I hear they’re ready to apologize to the patriotic Americans they’ve defamed and denounce the thugs at BLM and Antifa instead. And so, the time and money that could have gone to cable packages and tickets can go elsewhere. How about joining a bowling league with some friends or a membership at a gun range? That will utilize the time and money left available by abandoning those millionaire jocks who hate America. Not to mention the money it will deprive the networks and cable channels of.
As for Hollywood, there aren’t many options for motion picture production. But there will be soon. And until there are, think about other options. Old movies, old books, old tv shows, new books by people on our side of the fence. With the pent-up demand that shutting down the Hollywood sleaze train would produce you can afford to look around and find the books that are out there from authors on our side of the fence. On the science fiction and fantasy side of things I happen to like Larry Correia with his Monster Hunter books (and his other series). The military science fiction series “Galaxy’s Edge” by Jason Anspach and Nick Cole is one of my current favorites. Neither series features any trace of social justice or hate for traditional beliefs, just adventure and excitement. Vox Day has a publishing company, Castalia House that publishes book, and comic books and soon even some kind of movies that are oriented in our direction. Supporting all of these and more is a way to help our side to grow its own culture independent of the Left.
And there should be plenty of other companies and people out there that don’t insult us on a daily basis and would be a much better place for us to spend money on. If you know of any, pass the names along and I’ll list them in a database as a reference for others.
But that’s the idea. Consciously shifting time and money away from enemy institutions and locating alternatives is better than just saying you will boycott the Left’s companies. The pent-up demand for entertainment will still exist if you boycott. And if you become bored you may drift back to the enemy. Use that demand and the money saved to do something worthwhile. Add to all the things I’ve mentioned anything else that you are interested in, camping, bird watching, hunting, fishing, baseball, softball, hockey, whatever. Find people on our side and spend time and money with them. It’s the smartest way to make our side stronger and coincidentally you’ll make the Left weaker at the same time.
I bang this drum pretty often because I think there’s more that can actually be done on these small personal choices than all the yelling and screaming about the latest Leftist outrage. Talking politics is fine and has its place but this is a culture war that will go on as long as we live and probably longer. We need to start making our lives better and theirs worse. So, invest the time to find alternatives to the Left’s stranglehold on the culture.
