I'm with those who believe that simply not watching any movies only serves to take you out of the equation. You're no longer a data point showing a demand for different terms.
If you choose by your definition to truly boycott, that's fine, but in my opinion it only affects your own peace of mind. You become a non-entity to the entertainment industry and will have little to no effect on the outcome.
Thanks nasch. I actually had to go back and re-read what I said to see if I might have implied that.
I do find it interesting that Morgenstern presents an argument that could have come directly from the friend I was speaking of. I don't think I would want to drink beer with both of them at the same time.
And he is correct about one thing about me. I really don't understand how change is a problem. You can point out specific instances or examples of change that suck to you, to be sure, and I might agree on some of them. But in general, change is what makes the world so fascinating as far as I'm concerned.
I have a friend who truly believes that the rapid advancement of technology is destroying society. And the reason he believes that is because he can't keep up with it. Because he can't keep up, it must be bad. What folks like this never seem to understand or accept is that the world of the past they're comfortable is the result of things changing.
The changing world is not the problem. Your inability to adapt to it is.
