greedI just read an article about Walmart and how they’re going to start selling used video games in November. That means they’re targeting game stop stores. Well this story got me to thinking about all the companies that want to rule the world sort of. There’s Bill Gates who has for years wanted to control access to the internet and all the information contained there. Then there’s Google same ambitions. Amazon wants to control the entire retail world including what we can read, eat, watch, and play. You see this unbridled ambition in a lot of companies some such as the ones above just try to buy their competition out others like big banks want to destroy theirs anyway they can. I wonder at what point is all this greed going to come back and bite them in the ass and what the effect on the rest of us will be? We know they don’t give a shit about us they don’t want us to be educated unless we think like they do. If you really want to see the dangers of this greed look at the food industry you have two major companies trying to control either the production or the consumption of our food. On the production end you have Monsanto and on the consumption end Nestle foods. Monsanto has managed to get itself include in free trade agreements such as the one the US has with Colombia. In said agreement was included a provision that the farmers in Colombia had to use Monsanto’s genetically altered seeds to grow food for export. Nestle on the other hand just buys the competition out. I know a lot of my friends march against some these companies and their policies but until we can hurt them on a very seriously economic front I don’t see thing changing just getting worse. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
