If I stopped buying from everyone who exploits or takes advantage of people or who does things I don't want to support, I would not get the goods and services I need. I buy local when I can, but Amazon has put most of the people I like to buy from out of business in my community. I can't afford small speciallty shops. Our bank has to be convenient in three different counties for tenants to pay rent. We need cell and internet services. It's not a perfect world. Life is complicated, especially when you are almost 80 and you are living in a pandemic and need to stay home as much as possible.
