Re: “Boycott Wal-Mart

I think that the one good thing about WalMart is just this: it illustrates so graphically where American culture is fatally flawed. As Americans, we are willing to kill, literally as demonstrated by the recent tragic events, for cheap consumer products from China. Give me a $200.00 plasma tv, and I will kill you to get it. Are we terribly concerned about the working conditions of women and children in China? I rather think not. We want the cheap and easy. My thought is that the American economy is failing just because of this consume without consequence ethos. I do beleive, or at least I hope, that somewhere in the American culture, we once again find our backbones; that spirit of innovation and independance - once Walmart becomes a symbol of the mundane - a symbol of non-individuality and milque toast non-American ruggedness then maybe WalMart will dissolve and we will all come to our senses. Cattlemen don't shop WalMart. We'll leave that to the sheepherders.
