Savage Wal-Mart Shoppers Trample Worker to Death

By Mike Adams, November 28, 2008 | Key concepts: Wal-Mart, Shopping and Herd mentality

Bookmark and Share   Read Comments | Post Comments

There's probably not a better scene that exemplifies American culture today: A 34-year-old Wal-Mart worker was trampled to death by 200 crazed shoppers this morning as they rushed into the store at 5:00 am to cash in on special discounts.

The mob of shoppers reportedly "took the doors off the hinges," injuring three other people in the stampede. They didn't even stop for emergency crews that were later treating the Wal-Mart employee on the scene -- they just kept rushing past, trying to get their share of the Wal-Mart discounts on "Black Friday," the biggest shopping day of the year.

Just how jacked up is American culture, anyway, when rushing to get some shopping done is more important than stopping to pick someone up off the floor and save their life? The herd mentality has taken over. Literally. All the advertising, commercial brainwashing, brand imprinting and the push to get people to own more stuff has led to this insane reality where people think that shopping is the key to happiness, and they're willing to do anything to get it.

Of course, this mentality isn't limited to America, but I think America exemplifies it best when we witness stampeding Wal-Mart shoppers killing a fellow human being.

I suppose now they'll have to post big signs on the Wal-Mart front doors: "Please don't trample employees." Or, better yet, the Wal-Mart employees should just be issued electrified cattle prods, and the shoppers can be corralled into branding chutes where they're branded with ID numbers and fitted with ear tags. This would allow Wal-Mart security cameras to identity which members of the herd are responsible for causing the most death and destruction.

After all, if the people are going to act like cattle, we might as well treat 'em like cattle.

It should be noted here that even though the Wal-Mart shoppers stampeded over a human being, they did not stampede over their coveted consumer electronics or big-screen TVs. No merchandise in the store was harmed in the stampede, which just goes to show you: To the herd, the value of a human life is LESS than the value of consumer electronics.
