Eye opener for December 11, 2023

Blaming people who have been impoverished for desperate acts they may commit seems a little reductive. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not saying we shouldn't blame people for committing acts of murder or even act of theft against individuals or a community or charity, etc., but stealing from corporations that have bled a nation's citizens dry... That's another matter all together.

Take America's biggest employer, in small towns all across America, Walmart has put mom and pop stores out of business. Walmart then became the biggest employer in those towns. The problem with Walmart being the biggest employer in America or in a small town is that they don't pay living wages, so those towns slowly died. And, as the people in those towns in which Walmart took over became impoverished, they couldn't even afford the cheap stuff that Walmart sold. So Walmart (the corporation) closed down Walmart (stores) across the nation. This left a lot of town's people across the U.S. unemployed and poor. This kind of corporate malfeasance does not produce a sustainable society. It, instead heralds in the demise of a society.

If, if this was the only bad thing that Walmart has done to its employees and the country, that would be bad enough, but that's just the surface. Walmart is guilty of many things but I will just point out the most grievous policy that this mult-billion dollar company maintained until it was exposed. I don't even know how this was legal, but Walmart took out life insurance policies against it employees. Not just any employees, but those with illnesses that made the probability of cashing in on those policies that much higher. Walmart was betting that it's sickest employees would die from whatever terminal illness they suffered. This seems like something worthy of some jail time. Alas, like the crimes bank repeatedly get caught committing, none of WalMart's nefarious activities were ever tried. Walmart wasn't even found guilty in the court of public opinion. Americans had been sufficiently and are still sufficiently propagandized to accept immoral, units, illicit behavior.

In 2018, I wrote a book highlighting the problems Humanity would face if more power, wealth, and control was funneled to a small group of elite individuals, groups, or organizations. In my book, I provided solutions (from myself and others) to the inevitable problems and also a means for the Public to analyze, compare, and contrast the words and deeds of those we choose to follow against reality. In my book Solutions: Enough complaining. Let's fix America.

In "Solutions...", I provide the means for readers to disseminate information as provided by their news sources of choice, their elected officials, and any other authority they choose to follow. The book also offers a means to hold their leaders up, not just to a higher standard than is currently accepted but to one that would improve their lives and the lives of those for whom they care.
