    corporatocracy. No matter what we say about it, there are millions of Americans waiting to go nuts on Thanksgiving/black Friday. There is nothing we can do about it.
       I laid in supplies so that I wouldn't have to go out over the Thanksgiving weekend, had a simple dinner with my nearby family, and that's about it.
       The best thing to do is live your values and let other people do their thing as far as shopping goes.
       The most important issue is climate change and a sustained shift to renewable energy. The desperate and ostentatious consumption around the holidays is unseemly and decadent but ultimately just a distraction.
