Clipper Media News continues to support the people of Ukraine, but we are not convinced that not buying one product in favor of buying another product is the way to go.

Clipper Media News will continue to avoid #CokeCola, #McDonalds and #Starbucks.
But not for any humanitarian reasons. In truth, we just don’t like any of these products.
And CMN will read Fyodor Dostoyevsky if so desired.
We will also continue to support the people of Ukraine and even the Prince of Snugness, but in truth, CMN is not convinced that the decision to ‘boycott’ one product in favor of buying another product serves any real purpose.
Other consumers the world-over are welcome to do as they wish.
But bear in mind, please: our entire society is based on the absolute certainty that we will continue to buy products, no matter what.
Not doing so is one of the few real powers we have left to determine our own global fate.
In short: The act of not buying shit you do not need is an actual political decision.
