People and communities
The story entitled “Wal-Mart Nation” is a depiction of the social construction that emerged in a supermarket. In the beginning of the story, I as the reader thought that the story is about the Wal-Mart Nation itself. There are no attachment in different sociological perspectives and issues. However, by reading and understanding the whole story, I have seen that the Wal-Mart Nation is the China society where there are struggles, pains, and sociological distinctions between different people and communities.
The Wal-Mart helped the whole society of China changes because of the stuffs and different things that can be brought all through the entire supermarket. By looking at the logical perspective, this Wal-Mart is China as a whole because it depicts the culture and tradition of the society. Because China has different selling products, they became the shopping capital of the world that can be seen in the whole world through their productions and human resources.
The whole story is an elaboration of the whole scenario that exists in a certain place but a depiction of the whole country. The whole story does not need to have deeper sense of resolution because it is only a representation of the society of China for trade industry. However, despite of all the presentation of the issues, the author has its own stand. It means that there are simple issues that need to state a stand in order to share the ideologies and perspective towards the social issues.
It shows that the author has the sensitivities and could relate to the problems and issues of the society in a larger concept and context. Therefore, I can say that the whole story is just a simple story of trade and industry that exists in China. It is good to know that there are some stories that tackle the trade and industry of China in both fictional and realistic attempt and discussion.
