I shop at Walmart because it's the only goddamn place in Shallotte to get certain things. I hate myself each time I walk in there.
But see, that's the larger point. With smaller localized businesses you have a higher employment ratio. When you have a super chain that can supply the entire regions needs, you have more people looking for work and more people willing to take a poo wage because there's less work to be had. Those smaller shops can no longer compete, from a price standpoint, even when paying their employees minimum wage, where as they weren't before the days of Walmart. Thereby, competition is eliminated and you have droves of idiot zombies looking for work at Walmart because it's one of the largest job providers in town, never mind that there were actually MORE jobs in town to be had before Walmart got there.
So you hate Wal-Mart because they offer low pay to workers that accept low pay.
Man, my blood boils at the thought of mutual exchange, too. These dumb, ignorant monkeys should know better than to make their own contracts with employers.
Do you also hate yourself for using public or subsidized goods/services that are provided using funds collected at gunpoint?
Or does that not violate any moral premises of yours?
(This is a trick question. You shouldn't be enraged at either. I'm curious why you have emotional reactions like "hate" to these things, though.)
