It really bites because Wal-Mart only sells censored versions of CDs. Not such a big deal until you step back and realize how much of the music industry Wal-Mart controls, it is frightening. With their limited selection, they control something like 15% of all music sold, worldwide. It is worse with books, they carry only 500 titles at a time, and control about 20% of all books sold.
If you get on a Wal-Mart shelf you are guaranteed to sell, but only if you conform to the 'family values' espoused by the single largest company in the world. Thats right, Wal-Mart is bigger the GM, bigger than DuPont, or anything else in the world.
By 2015, there will only be one company left, and we will all work for Wal-Mart, drive Wal-Mart cars, live in Wal-Mart modular homes, use Wal-Mart gas, see Wal-Mart doctors, with our Wal-Mart insurance.
That is scarier than any monster movie I have ever seen.
