Wrong! Want to hurt a corporation, don't buy their product. That will affect them a lot faster than waiting for the government to intervene.

I'm not suggesting that at all. I'm suggesting that individuals (and groups of individuals) can identify problems and make them known to the public. The public can react accordingly. Want an example of that in practice? Ever heard of the Better Business Bureau? How about Consumer Reports?
