Small Business versus Wal-Mart

You know I am an advocate of small business.

You also know that I not only favor the entrepreneur, but I have encouraged you to start your own small business.

So why would I come out in defense of Wal-Mart when it is accused of destroying small business by its hard ball tactics?

It is because I believe success should be rewarded, not attacked.

I am sure that you hope for your and your children's success, and you do not want to have that stolen by those that envy the fruit of your labor.

I am sure those driven by envy would love to take the Wal-Mart heirs' money and distribute it.

The envious probably live better than 95% of the world themselves. I am equally sure they would not want their own money taken and distributed to those less fortunate than themselves. They just want anyone more successful dragged down to their level.

"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery." - Winston Churchill

Read further of my reasoning in this post at Bastiat Free University.

Some may chose to comment here without reading the post at BFU. If their minds are already closed, ignore them.

You will hear a lot of the other side, their emotion over rides their logic. Read the information at BFuniv and decide to think about it, a decision can wait for you to mull the facts.

There is no reason to jump to a conclusion. There is no reason to stick with a decision if latter facts prove it wrong.

Our real education starts with unlearning what we were taught, and deciding for ourselves.

I have to agree, whole heartedly. In my opinion, if you punish people for success, you take away their incentive to better themselves. Also, what right does anyone have, hoping for their own success, while complaining about the success of others. If it's not right for them, it's not right for you.

Everyone should have a look at the movie, "Doctor Zhivago", if they think they'd like to imitate Soviet Russia.
