    Not just occasionally, but always.

    At the moment, Wal-Mart is universally detested by its employees.  Currently they're just engaging in low-grade sabotage and theft, but it takes absolutely no work to end up with a revolutionary violent union once you've been this heavy-handed -- one little spark of egregious abuse is all it takes, and people don't even need to be organized, it happens spontaneously.

    Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.
