Writing about McDonaldization, Ritzer claims that rational systems ‘deny the basic humanity, the human reason, of the people who work within or are served by them’ (1994:154). In your own words, explain Ritzer’s meaning. Then select a site in which you might observe the phenomenon of McDonaldization, as outlined by Ritzer. Some examples might include a fast food restaurant or large discount store. Describe your observation and how the 4 elements of McDonaldization (efficiency, calculability, predictability and control) are at work.
