There is a (probably not entirely legal) consumer solution: http://unvis.it
"What the tool does is to try to capture the content of an article or blog post without passing on your visit as a pageview. Effectively this means that you're not paying with your attention, so you can read and share the idiocy that it contains."
There's no meaningful difference between abolishing DST and making DST permanent. It's really just a question about whether you'd permanently like a little more sun in the morning, or the afternoon.
In the Northern city that I live in, in the winter, a permanent DST would be preferable. We're already in the preferable situation 8 months of the year. No reason not to just extend it the other 4 months, permanently.
