I observed what I considered a hopeful sign this morning at Wal-Mart. No matter what you think of Wal-Mart, they are the best run retailer in the world. They are a gorilla. They know what sells and they react immediately to demand. I was walking down their book aisle. They carry books that sell. I was shocked to see a an entire section prominently displaying these books:Orwell’s 1984
Orwell’s Animal Farm
To Kill a Mockingbird
Catcher in the Rye
Huxley’s Brave New World
There weren’t just a few books, there were rows of these novels. There were clearly many that had been bought, as there were substantial gaps in the rows. Wal-Mart is not the retailer to the rich. This means that average middle class Americans are reading books that will awaken them to the reality of America today. This is happening below the surface.
The ruling elite do not know this is happening. Politicians in Washington DC and the Wall Street bankers are using the same techniques they have used for decades to keep the masses sedated. Many Americans remain sedated and distracted by their iPhones and other gadgets, but some of us are waking up from our stupor. The Tea Party and the proliferation of great websites speaking about truth, freedom, liberty and free speech are a sign that things are going to change. The ruling elite can ignore Wal-Mart America, but there are many more of us than them. Their time is growing short.
