Everything is Rigged

Updated: Mar 22, 2019

And corrupt. Unfair, of course. The economy is structured to help the wealthiest, abetted by the corporately owned politicians ostensibly representing their constituents

Victories once won have to be fought again: the right to choose, fair wages, elimination of a poll tax, just to cite a few.

Experts are dismissed and ridiculed and it seems that most people lie.

We have elections in which the referee is one of the candidates. And newly installed governors who are being stripped of power by a gerrymandered legislature.

Everyone is angry.


Do you want bipartisanism? Well, inchoate fury is apparently the bridge.

Decades ago a wealthy hotelier declared: “only the little people pay taxes.”

Just now, one of the many quotes bubbling up from the admissions scandal is that only the suckers go through the admission’s office. Suckers and those students whose parents don’t have money in 6 and 7 figures to bribe their way into certain institutions.

People are angry. They are protesting in every way they can. The majority view on issues doesn’t appear to have any effect on policy. Marches and protests fade and the people are not heard.

While we as a country are finding a way out this morass, there is something that you can do.

It is simple, effective, safe and private.

Or as public as you want it to be.

Don’t Shop on Tuesdays.

Each and every week.

Weaponize time. Demonstrate, through metrics and analysis, how big we are through our absence.

This entails no bribery or incompetence. There are no laws preventing this action.

It is the great equalizer.
