18. If you were to say "take action" if would make more sense. The way I see it, the Waltons are
responsible for their own greed and for the mistreatment of their employees. No one else need take responsibly for the Waltons' actions. Even if they were brought up by wolves, or selfish capitalists, and didn't initially know what they were doing was harmful, they've heard from enough activists that they've known for a while now.
People need to "point at" a problem before they can take action to solve it. Then they have to figure out what action to take. Why are you so down on average people who don't know how to solve the problem rather than the The Waltons, who, again, see that big picture just fine and have all the resources in they need to figure out how they can not be total dicks and still be freaking millionaires. Most other people are busy trying to make it day to day and don't see the big picture and so what to do is not so obvious. Those would be the employees.
As for the ones bringing the "baskets of money." No one customer is doing that, so once again, they don't see the big picture, the whole basket. I'd bet most Americans have no idea who owns Walmart and how incredibly wealthy they are or how poorly they treat their employees. And, of course, some don't care.
