It’s gratifying that western society is finally waking up to the value of consuming real food.

– Embattled fast food giant McDonald’s is making headlines yet again. The company has just launched its much advertised all-day breakfast program, but as that campaign rolls out, franchise owners are voicing their concerns over what may be the company’s dying days.

As we covered at Anti-Media in June, the McDonald’s franchise has been shrinking for the first time in the company’s over 40 year history:

“McDonald’s announced in April that it would be closing 700 ‘underperforming’ locations, but because of the company’s sheer size — it has 14,300 locations in the United States alone — this was not necessarily a reduction in the size of the company, especially because it continues to open locations around the world. It still has more than double the locations of Burger King, its closest competitor.”

However, for the franchisees, the picture looks much worse than simply 700 stores closing…

  1. That is good news. However, here in our area, another MacDonalds opened recently. They are also infiltrating schools and sporting organisations.
    We went inside a MacDonatds yesterday to use the toillet. People were queueing up like addicts for daily fix. Some barely able to get out of the car and make it to the entrance. Those that were totally incapacitated drove through the drive-by section to order their triple layered burgers and 2 litre coke.
    Ambulances could be heard in the distance carrying those that succumbed to heart attacks or final stages of diabetes to the hospitals already filled to maximum capacity by MacDonalds victims. Finally a class action against the fast food industry must happen sooner or later.

  2. After that Food video you posted, I hope this dying comes to fruition.

    The McDonalds close to me has always been busy, and I live in the poor section of a wealthy suburb. But lately, over the last year or so, when I drive by, the lot and the drive-thru are almost always empty.

  3. That’s a double edged sword. Imagine a poor family of 5, with the 1$ cheese burgers they used to serve, each could have a burger while $5 bought you nothing of consequence at the local super market. A system based on infinite growth has no alternative but to face a wall of finite reality. As usual, some one else will pay the price.

    • I suppose it’s a matter of choices. In the rural third world, poor peasants survive on plant protein (beans, corn, lentils). They’re far poorer than the westernized poor, but are definitely healthier.

      My long medical training meant I was a a low income student till I was 30 – so I know it’s possible to buy rice and beans in bulk and get a 6 months supply of each for $30 each (current prices).

      I think a big part of the problem is that most low income people depend on the mainstream media for most of their information. The option of buying rice and beans in bulk is never offered – only the glamour of fast foods.
