Walmart and Spinoza

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Permit me to offer a Spinozan perspective into the debate regarding Walmart:in particular and coroprations in general:



In his 'political tract' he noted that the '-cracy' in democracy, meant the people are empowered to change things,(kratos in greek means more like 'direct' than 'rule' as such).



Having empowerment but not using it is a definite statement that one accepts the status quo--that there is nothing to direct.



Walmart builds huge boxes, pays poorly and refuses to hire full-time--all in the name of economic efficiency.



Oth, all corporations are chartered by the states, who have the power to set wage, full-time status, and assess large-scale efficiency againt environmentl impact and the sociocultural benefits of promoting smallness of business scale.



Ditto for lobbyists as they're registered under a code of conduct
