Interesting comment by Revizzy(my cuz) to start a rousing conversation. Not that I only want to focus on Wal-Mart, but it certainly a good example
As with everything, there are two sides. Hopefully we can change what needs to be changed, but at what cost? I mean, for an extreme example: Walmart. I know that the corporation engages in very shoddy practices that are unethical. But, When you see that family that actually needs help (and not the ones cheating the system) and the fact that they can buy more groceries to feed their children at walmart, than other stores…. I mean… At what cost to we fight the evilness of Walmart? It will effect those here in America that can barely afford to feed their children.
It’s a vicious cycle. So you just start where you can. I believe that if we fight the systemic problems of America, such as economic racism, then perhaps we can better be available to other issues (especially economic)
It is a vicious cycle. Wal-Mart makes it easier for people for people who can barely afford to feed their families, because they are able to buy more food, but why are these people barely able to afford to feed their families? What effect did Wal-Mart have on the outcome, causing that cycle. And how can that be turned around?
What part is the church supposed to play in this? Are they to stay out of it?
