Check!

I haven't watched any program on my own TV for many weeks (I do watch films on DVD, though).

I do buy from supermarkets but I avoid fast food chains and certain other conglomerates.

I currently don't own a car because I used to drive a company car and budgetary reasons don't allow me to buy a car of my own just yet. Still, I believe a car is pretty necessary if you want to be really mobile.

I try to cook mostly with fresh ingredients and luckily genetic manipulation is heavily regulated in Europe (where I live).

I live in a country where tap water is not fluorised, so this is no issue for me.

Thus, I never buy anything on credit (I don't own a house yet) and I don't even own a creditcard. I used to prefer cash, though currently prefer my debet card for practical reasons.

Check!

I've been doing my own independent research for about a decade and I've developed my own private library with socially relevant works (mostly topics like war, politics, sociology, philosophy, economy, ...) from throughout the last 150 years (including some very rare works) to support my research.

I had a talk with a collegue of mine (I work in IT) on international politics, conspiracies, etc. By doing so, I helped increase awareness just a little bit
