9/11 Blacklist: Using Our Dollars for Change
by Peter Zaza
On the grand chessboard of the power elite in this world, we may only represent insignificant entities insofar as we are concerned as individuals. However, when considered as a group, we have the potential for considerable influence. Our strength in numbers only serves our cause to the detriment when we blindly live our lives as an economic engine for the ruling class – it is our ignorance that works against us. Our strength is the realization of millions of independent thinkers who can influence the cause of freedom by affecting change where we ourselves hold the most power – as in boycotts of key industries and products.
At first I set upon the task of approaching 911 truth and justice by myself, and then by trying to seek out the help of others. I thought that if we could build up our strength through large numbers, we could overcome these evil forces and return the system to some humane state of being. This approach I now believe is entirely erroneous because of several reasons; the main one being the fact that these actions are precisely what the authorities expect from us. We are not going to beat them on their terms so we must alter the rules of engagement by utilizing a very effective solution which can achieve the same objective – while not endangering anyone to the inherent violence and manipulation of the state.
“All network television and radio are driven by advertising dollars. We can get the networks attention by targeting their sponsors, and therefore, have an impact on their advertising revenues. The most effective way of doing this is to boycott the products and services of the advertisers which choose to advertise on these various networks. There is strength in numbers and we need to make ourselves heard by hitting them where it hurts, in the pocket-book. This site is dedicated to beginning that process.”

There is another philosophical aspect to this direction of thought – there is no point in fighting fear and violence with the same methods used by those set against you – in which case you risk becoming that which you oppose. When we are illuminated with the light of truth and understanding, we can then use that power to influence the course of events and effect change. How long could they last if a majority of the people started to boycott key industries and products the corporations are dependent upon for rising profits?
Too often people can feel helpless against the giant machine of corporatism. 911 Blacklist gives us the opportunity and the mechanism with which we can take back control. I urge everyone to get involved with this project – indeed, the only way it can work is if sufficient numbers of people realize the power we have collectively.
