Corporations exist for profit. Many of them operate at a pretty narrow profit margin, some at a larger one. But essentially you don't need to take away all their income, just enough so that they can't make enough profit to make it worth their investors' while to invest. And then they'll wither on the vine. Starve the big multinational corporations out of existence. It would only take a reduction of 3 to 5% of their revenue, in most cases.
And the beauty of this is, it doesn't even take force of arms. Just some coordination.
Find local sources of things you now buy from these corporations, and try to go local as best as you can. It may cause some inconvenience or be a little more expensive at first, but in the long run we'll end up free from tyranny if we do this enough. Or freer, anyway. Of course, it also has to be done in a way that it's still affordable, or only trust-fund hippies will do it.
I totally stole this idea from here: http://www.activistpost.com/2012/07/strategies-for-undermining-globalist.html
Now, how do I travel to the next state to see Grandma without buying gasoline or needing a car? I guess I could either walk, or bike, or rent a horse and buggy. Or in the interest of going faster, I could try to get someone to design and build biodiesel vehicles locally. (Maybe that French guy who turned his Citroen into a motorcycle in the desert!)
Also, I find it really convenient and cheaper than the local gun shop to buy ammo from Wal-Mart. I guess I could learn how to reload. When the SHTF I don't think Wal-Mart will be selling any more ammo after a certain point, anyway.
This is going to take some work and some thought. Obviously we can't do it all at once, but maybe over 5 years or a decade we localistas can divorce ourselves from multinationals completely.
So what's the low hanging fruit? Maybe it's fruit itself. We've got locavores. I eat a lot out of my own back yard. Energy would be next, I guess.
How can YOU be more of a localista?
