A new report shows the real cost of Walmart’s low wages: a single 300-employee Walmart Supercenter in Wisconsin may cost taxpayers anywhere from $904,542 to nearly $1.75 million per year, or about $5,815 per employee. While taxpayers foot the bill for subsidized housing assistance, the food-stamp program, child-care subsidies, energy assistance, and reduced school meals for Walmart’s low-paid workers, Walmart profits.

And it’s not like everyone can just boycott Walmart, either.
I mean, obviously, some people can and do, but let’s face it…there a lot of people who, for whatever reason, can’t boycott Walmart. Really low prices are part of it, but what if you live in an area where Walmart is really the only true food source you have access to? Some people have no option other than Walmart, so they wind up subsidizing everything listed above without any true say in the matter.
I guarantee you the head honchos at Walmart know that, too.

It’s easy to say “fuck cultural identities, we’re all human” when your culture is not the one being exploited, marginalized and oppressed. It’s easy to say “fuck borders” when your country is the one who puts up the borders. And it is really fucking easy to say “we all bleed red” when it’s not bodies of your people riddled with bullets because Western capitalism has a price.

When I write general level books (or posts on this page), I generally avoid equations as most people are more comfortable with plain English.  But equations are beautiful. Within a few symbols, equations can capture deep mathematical truths or far reaching aspects of the physical universe. Here are 3 of my favorites. The first equation is amazing: in a single simple expression it ties together three basic mathematical constructs: Pi, i (the square root of -1), and e (the base for natural logarithms). The second are the Einstein Field Equations from General Relativity, which relate the curvature of space-time (left hand side of equation) to the distribution of energy-momentum in space-time. The third is, well, one of those equations that makes your jaw drop. It is a formula for Pi that was discovered by the singular mathematical genius, Srinivasa Ramanujan.  Even if you don’t understand all the symbols, it is worth now and then seeing the language that we’ve found, at least so far, to be the most powerful in grasping the architecture of reality. —BG
