Hyper-reality tricked consciousness into detaching from any real emotional engagement, instead opting for artiﬁcial simulation, and endless reproductions of fundamentally empty appearance (Baudrillard, 1988), a type of Marxist false consciousness (Žižek, 1997). Baudrillard’s bleak perspective was that ‘shopping’ persuades us to purchase items in a doomed attempt to construct an authentic (though empty) personal identity based on possessions. An even bleaker perspective is shown by the fact that the ideas of Baudrillard, Foucault and other post-modernists have been studied as carefully by modern retailers as by their critics (Economist, 2006).
3 Shopper and Shoplifter Introduction In most countries, there is a very large number of customers who steal from shops and there is a large number of reasons why they do so. Theft from shops by ordinary customers, unlike most crimes, is very common, committed by both persons who enter stores solely to steal and those who shop and steal at the same time – and this is rather more difﬁcult to understand. Why do people who have a job also steal from stores? Why is someone caught shoplifting for one or two items when they have enough in their purse to pay for them?
In The Overworked American, Schor (1993) declared, ‘We live in what may be the most consumer-oriented society in history . . ’ Paterson (2006) refers to the ‘commodity fetishism’ of merchandise displayed in shopping malls but emptied of meaning, and reﬂects that while the recognition of Christian religious festivals had spread around the world, they were now used primarily as retail gift opportunities. Klein (2001) in No Logo condemned retailers for their treatment of workers, suppliers and consumers, whilst in the United Kingdom Blythman (2005) created a portrait of supermarkets that impoverished farmers, created trivial work, damaged towns and neighbourhoods, forced smaller shops to close, harmed the environment and adversely affected the quality of UK food and our diet.
