It only takes one person to refuse.
It only takes one person to resist.
If one domino says “Oh, fuck that” and steps out of line, the world can start to change.
What unfair bullshit have you cooperated with this week?
What unfair bullshit will you refuse to cooperate with next week?

It only takes one person to refuse.

What unfair bullshit have you cooperated with this week?

What unfair bullshit will you refuse to cooperate with next week?

[Calvin sits behind an overturned box marked “Lemonade $15.00/glass” with a pitcher on it.]
SUSIE: 15 bucks a glass?!
CALVIN: That’s right! Want some?
SUSIE: How do you justify charging 15 dollars?!
CALVIN: Supply and demand.
SUSIE: [gesturing to the absence of other customers] Where’s the demand?! I don’t see any demand!
CALVIN: There’s LOTS of demand!
SUSIE: Yeah?
CALVIN: Sure! As the sole stockholder in this enterprise, I DEMAND monstrous profit on my investment! And as President and CEO of the company, I DEMAND an exorbitant annual salary! And as my own employee, I DEMAND a high hourly wage and all sorts of company benefits! And THEN there’s overhead and actual production costs! 
SUSIE: But it looks like you just threw a lemon in some sludge water!
CALVIN: Well, I have to cut expenses SOMEwhere if I want to stay competitive.
SUSIE: What if I got sick from that?
CALVIN: “Caveat emptor" is the motto we stand behind! I’d have to charge more if we followed health and environmental regulations.
SUSIE: You’re out of your mind. I’m going home to drink something else.
CALVIN: Sure! Put me out of a job! It’s you anti-business types who ruin the economy!
[Calvin looks disgruntled, then walks inside and addresses his mother.]
CALVIN: I need to be subsidized.
