    I agree with that sentiment wholeheartedly. As a side story:

    I've always wanted religious people to come to my door and admonish me for not following their beliefs, etc. One day last year, I got my wish: 2 Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on my door. They were extremely polite and simply asked:

    "Don't you think the world is really looking bad lately?" (or something along the lines of the world going to ****)

    And I responded, "No, I think it's as good as it's ever been if not the best. We are more peaceful, knowledgeable, less violent, etc, you just hear about it more now through the Internet and news". God damn I felt smart. And one of them responded:

    "No, I mean the actual world, it's getting ruined by pollution and warming". I agreed, they gave me some literature and left, and I felt stupid and disappointed that they were so nice.

    Yes. Did you write that?

    No-its the thugs that decided to get "unruly" who are to blame.

    adverb
    to some extent; not completely.
    "the result is partly a matter of skill and partly of chance"
    synonyms: to a certain extent/degree, to some extent/degree, in part, partially, a little, somewhat, not totally, not entirely, relatively, moderately, (up) to a point, in some measure, slightly
    "I admit I am partly responsible"

    So what you are saying is that to some extent the retailer is to blame. Fascinating.

    To some extent, retailers are responsible for fostering the culture of rampant consumerism. Yes. Please try to take the entire conversation into perspective before you begin accusing me of saying that the retailers are wholly responsible for misbehaving mobs at their stores.
