All Hell Can't Stop Us Now


You know, I'm all for protesting. I think a peaceful protest is a good way to bring attention to things. And I think it helps people feel they're making a difference. Every now and then, it works.

I think protests can be through-provoking. And inspiring.

But if you're going to do it, you have to commit. Especially when it comes to boycotts.

If you're in the middle of a meal and suddenly decide you want to boycott the restaurant. Don't sit there and bitch about the restaurant while you continue to finish your meal.

If you bought a pre-paid card from a store and three days later decide to boycott the company, don't go spend the rest of your card.

Boycotts and protests are about making a sacrifice. If you believe strongly in your cause, you would stick to your guns. When you're done, you're done.

Go ahead,. Call up your bank and tell them you want to close out your account right now because you're boycotting the company. But when you find out about how much the early withdrawal penalty will be, don't say "Well . . . maybe I'd better wait. But you can be sure that when it's done, it will be closed immediately!

It just doesn't serve your cause well. It just seems less passionate.
