-Use a marker pen to change the message on signs and posters
-block entrances to malls and big box stores.
-move books in bookstores-- like take a Glenn Beck book and put it in the horror fiction section.
-borrow money from banks and credit cards then give it to advocacy and activism groups-- and don't pay it back (Farnish reports a Spaniard did this with over $400,000.)
His whole book is available free for download, or can be purchased. That's a bottom-up, undermining approach.
Change the System At the Edges
Direct assaults on BIG are very difficult, at best. So, start by advocating for funding for research aimed at developing SMALL business approaches and solutions to problems that are usually only attacked by big business. This is a big topic that deserves its own article. But briefly, the goal is to look at all the touted advantages of big business and then identify small ways to do them as well or better, for the same or lower cost. Part of the research will be to include local benefits and costs that are not usually included in the BIG business solution equation. Identifying ways that are more profitable-- for the business and/or for the local community-- can lead to BIG companies embracing SMALL approaches, and can lead to legislation that supports SMALL ways.
Start Eroding the Benefits of Big; Begin reducing the advantages and attractions of big.
-Cap tax breaks at a certain spending level.
-Add taxes after a certain level, for individuals and companies. That's what the USA had under Eisenhower-- a 92% tax rate on the highest portions of the highest income brackets.
-drastically raise dynasty taxes-- on inheritances over $20 million per person. No more billion dollar inheritances for Walmartian Waltons.
-Make it a lot less attractive for BIG companies to acquire smaller businesses. For example, require that the number of local employees be kept for five years.
