Walmart taking over small businesses in communities is a good example of Corporate Rape. Small businesses can't compete with Walmart's low prices attained only through purchasing at high volume. Small businesses closes down, because they can't match the price. Walmart's ad campaigns manipulate the consumer into thinking they are doing something good by shopping at Walmart by saving money. Small business can't compete by sharing their side of the story. Consumers remain ingnorant. The people are manipulated into buying necessary items at Walmart, . The small business owners will probably file bankruptcy. The economical integrity of the town is is fragmented and cultural threads are frayed.
