While some corporate leaders would see this map as a "great success", I see it as a 50 year progression of a slide towards lower quality, mediocrity, idiocracy, a "throw away society". Think about the coffee makers, the blenders, the consumer goods that you used to have when you were much younger, in your parents' home, and the significantly lower quality junk that Walmart sells today, if you disagree with my point.
It's been 4 years since I walked into a Walmart, and that was only because they were the only place open in the middle of the night. It's been almost 15 years sine I intentionally shopped at a Walmart. I use my wallet and my personal spending discretion to fight this contagion.
Kudos to all those communities around the world who are fighting the opening of Walmart stores in their neighborhood. "Brought to you by Carl's Jr. Brought to you by Carl's Jr".
