I've already said I won't buy.
Resistance is not futile, and it doesn't have to be spectacular. Some people have always resisted when ideas like this get started - they resisted the Nazis, they resisted the Communists. They didn't all blow up bridges like in the movies, either. Eventually these regimes fail.
As for your "dark ages" comment, ponder the idea that some of those dark ages serfs had more actual freedom and led better lives. Shiny isn't automagically good.
It won't work. The number of non-buyers won't outweigh the numbers of buyers and the companies won't fall. So, your "fight the corporate world" won't work. A good example of this is RIM (the Blackberry maker). Look how many people were trying to not buy they products and make a dent in their future. It didn't happen. It wasn't until a couple of years ago that more and more people moved onto Android and most importantly, their larger corporate contracts moved onto iPhones (due to more carriers having the iPhone now) that their company is finally in trouble. Even so, they're still surviving. It takes a really long time to resist and an amazing number of people and most importantly other corporations to fight just one company with deep pockets. Good and luck if you think your 1 man fight will do anything. lol
You need an essential lesson in how to take back our liberty, our freedom, our privacy. 1+1+1+1 and on and on, little by little, is how it is done in the beginning. Eventually, with a lot of hard work and perseverance, critical mass is achieved. Maybe not in my remaining lifetime but I will still work toward achieving this. If I give up, another working toward reclaiming our nation may give up, and then another and those who might have joined our effort never join because some of us gave up or never even tried. It IS
