Oligarchs Are Not Looking Out For You
I read this article, and all I could think was.
The problem with all this is that Amazon has no interest in human prosperity, only profit.
They will eventually get a system that messes up so little that it wont matter, and then they can fire almost everyone and just have a purely robotic work force.
This would be fine if the government was taxing them heavily and using that money to provide a UBI or some other sort of social benefit.
But they wont, they will lobby the government to lower their taxes, and allow them to keep all their money. The end result being the division of those who own capital (in the form of robots) and those who don’t.
Those who don’t wont matter, and those who do will reign over all others.
Its a nasty brutal future that doesn’t have to exist, and is only perpetuated by greed. Amazon represents the worst of this drive, constantly optimizing for profit over human good.
Jeff Bezoz, Bill Gates, and Warren buffet, three people, are worth as much as 50% of Americans right now, and its only going to get worse.
Call up your senator and tell them you want to live in a future where robots do all the work, and everyone shares in the spoils. Not a world where a couple of all powerful oligarchs treat the rest of us like so much human garbage. We don’t have to allow this to happen to us, we can stop it now before it becomes unstoppable.
Ps. One easy thing you can do is not shop at this panopticon of a nightmare store.
Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.

Call the White House:
Call the “White House”:
Use this website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).
Do a little Slacktivism:
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
Monitor your congressperson:
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
