Take American food chains. They promote what is literally called “Junk Food” back in the US as the most fashionable cuisine in many countries, paying to the American principals a royalty of 5% on the sale for using their brand names. It is this 5% that goes to bloat the coffers of American corporations, many of whom are heavy contributors to the state of Israel.

I never eat at Burger King or Whataburger. Is that a boycott, stupidity or simply individual free expression?
Um, wouldn't that boycott also have to include a boycot of modern economics and government? Catch-22Originally posted by Integral
For your "boycott" to have any meaningful effect your corner of the globe will have to develope a modern economy, to do that, you will need to develope a modern goverment. As long as a medival oriented church is allowed to run your lives your boycott will have no effect. Perhaps it is time for the modern, educated protion of your population to assert themselves and demand a say in the ruling of your country.

I don't think the Roman Empire fell by people refusing to buy pizza. Nor will America decline because a few folks decide not buy carbonated water and hamburgers.
Phew. Fortunately the US is neither a "great conquerer" nor an empire. So we'll be ok...Originally posted by Moetasim
There was a time when in British Empire, Sun never set. There was a time when USSR was the largest country in the world...History is full of great conquerer's tales but none of the empires could live for ever.
