Well, in America's rural areas, they simply get their guns and shoot out the unwanted lights an thus restore the privacy associated with unlit nights.
Now, I'm not advocating a ballistic solution. Your ideas of social and political influence are far better.
Unfortunately, out here in the rural US, we now have LED billboards. Much worse than streetlights, and the %@** things are everywhere.
Tough to take out with any rifle, the display screen is too big, but one could probably do some damage driving by with a shotgun. Be careful with this, though...the US isn't yet under the same level of video surveillance as Britain, for example, but security cameras are getting very cheap...
I wonder if anyone has tried hacking into them? If enough "objectionable content" gets displayed by vandals, then maybe advertisers will just quit...? One can only hope.
Just wait, holographic billboards are in the near future!
and a sad "cheers" to all of you,
