Lately I’ve been looking at Organic Opposition instead of Organizational Opposition. The latter is still important, but people are rightly disappointed and angry with everything from the GOP to assorted national groups and bewildered by a wide array of candidates.
Organic Opposition doesn’t require organizations or a movement. It’s about living in ways that naturally oppose the left.
Most of the people here already live in ways that the left resents without even thinking about it. Organic Opposition is about finding new ways to oppose the power of the left in your life.
This is not a complete checklist. It’s a set of general ideas and people are welcome to add to them in the comments.
5. Don’t Give Money to People Who Hate You
Imagine meeting an actor or a CEO, and telling him your political views and envision his response to them. If you can see his lip stretching into a sneer or a spittle-flecked rant as he orders security to throw you out, you really shouldn’t be giving him your money.
That doesn’t mean that you should lose out, but there are ways that you stop rewarding people who hate you.
For example, when buying new books, you are helping that writer and his publishers. If you don’t support the writer, save money and buy the books used. It’s easy to find most of the books you want in good condition for a fraction of the price on sites like Alibris.
Buying new books should be reserved for writers you support.

The Confederate flag hysteria and the Trump purge are a warning sign of things to come. Imagine a day when it’s Ted Cruz’s books being purged from every online retailer and Apple blocking his App.
