Throughout the article, the author says “The shoplifter creates a third choice of her own: she takes the products she has been conditioned to desire without paying for them… Shoplifting is the most effective protest against all … modern corporations” (Ex-workers Pg. 2). The purpose of this article and its use of logos is to inform the reader of the how the big corporations are cheating them out of their money and how they can “stick it” to them. Ethos, pathos, and logos are all rhetorical strategies that are used to inform and convince the reader of the continuing problem of big corporations cheating people out of their hard earned money. The logic and the papers emotional pull all contribute to the credibility of the author and what she has to say.
It is the universal whore, the pander between men and peoples.’ Karl Marx, ‘the economic and philosophical manuscripts’ (1844). This is saying that money makes society function, it not only binds us together, but separates those who have it and those who don’t. - The issue of storytelling, how stories are received, who they serve, is an important theme in Othello - Individuals create stories about themselves to establish an identity  sometimes our stories are imposed on us - Othello states he ‘Saw the handkerchief’ (Act 5, Sc2, Ln66), but what he really saw was a mute fact – facts are meaningless until placed into context – Othello used the wrong story to interpret what he saw. He takes Iago’s lies as facts, believes everything else - Marxism emphasizes the link between power  storytelling  economics. Eg.
After reading and getting a sense or idea of what wilding is, things made more sense. I do believe that the idea of wilding can make people go crazy or obsess about their greed and the only thing stopping us all from wilding is not understanding what wilding is. I also believe that people would rather take shortcuts to being wealthy other than working hard and earning it. Like what Derber said, “Many signs point to a corruption of the American Dream in out time. Most Americans do not become killers to make it up the ladder or to hold on to what hey have, but the traditional restraints on naked self-aggrandizement seem weaker-and the insatiability greater” (Derber, p. 14).
This is just what they are paid, on top of this; they are receiving unfathomable amounts of money by power hungry companies. But this money is not given to them; it’s given to their cause. Given to an entity called a super pack. A group of people and companies that’s soul purpose is to create and change the laws to benefit who? Corporations?
Furthermore, proposed indirect taxes on luxury goods such as motor cars and petrol would have affected the Lords as they were among the few rich enough to afford such luxuries. The Lords set up a budget protest league and denounced the budget as “confiscation and robbery”, and breaking with convention overwhelmingly vetoed the budget. A less important reason was that the Lords believed the budget amounted to a social revolution. They were worried by the idea of progressive and redistributive taxation which taxes the rich more heavily. They feared once these principles were established they could be extended to ‘soak the rich’ and even out the unfair distribution of wealth in Edwardian Britain.
In the Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald expresses his concerns about the American Dream through Jay Gatsby. Much of his power comes from his money, which ties him to other sources of power in society, such as Meyer Wolfshiem, a mob boss from which Gatsby gains a lot of his influence. Fitzgerald addresses his views of the corrupt society through “I understand you’re looking for a business connection”. Wolfshiem’s secluded tone during this quote to Nick alludes to the fact that his business may be illegal, but overlooked in a society with differing morals. The film 21 also shows the influence of power and corruption on the American Dream.
His previous works of art suggest an anti-war, anti-capitalist stance and this mural follows that theme very well. His ironic view of capitalism is shown in this quote Shah 2 from his book Wall and Piece, "We can't do anything to change the world until capitalism crumbles. In the meantime we should all go shopping to console ourselves." Banksy supports those who are looked down upon by the rich and is a critic of today’s greedy society. At the same time, he doesn’t seem to think much of the independence of our society and
According to Mike Masnick, in the article, A Day In The Life Of Legalized Extortion: How The BMI Shakedown Works, illustrates that this is all legal but has the hallmark of a shakedown, making companies like BMI and ASCAP notorious for doing more harm than good. Furthermore, because of the way these systems work, they tend to funnel money disproportionately to big name artists while harming less well-known songwriters. BMI has been particularly obnoxious about this. For example, and undisclosed songwriter, did not receive any of the promised royalties, and when this matter was brought up, BMI responded that it was not their problem. One BMI employees even said, “I would like to tell him that he needs to write a hit song.” (Masnick) BMI also uses tactics of spying on venues to see if they’re playing music.
But it becomes wrong when you are selling your products at such a low price that you put all other companies out of business. When you are using this form of dumping, you put people out of work because their company can no longer afford to keep them on. Either way I don’t see any moral reasoning that would support dumping products overseas if it’s illegal. First you are breaking a law that has been setup to protect people. You are also intentionally causing harm to others, if you follow either definition.
