So I assume I’m late to the party, but I just read an article on a security guard who was trampled to death in a Walmart on “Black Friday” by shoppers rushing to get the best deals.
What the fuck is wrong with us as a culture? Seriously.
It just brings out so much anger because I think it’s sort of a symptom of a society that is obsessed with consumerism—obsessed with getting the best stuff for themselves at the detriment of others. Obsessed with getting a supposed deal (while many of the items are made for like a dollar in a third world country). And they are so focused on that precious deal that they would ignore the fact that there’s a man on the floor below them dying.
I worry about this country. A lot. I worry that we forget about the people around us in the pursuit of just getting more for us. More money. More possessions. More stuff. It’s not healthy.
