Let me start by saying, I do believe in Free Competition and Capitalism, what I do NOT believe in is Crony Capitalism or have State Based Capitalism (in which politicians are bought off to do corporate bidding). For about 2 decades, #Bezos and #Amazon destroyed the livelihood of
Millions of Americans and disrupted 100,000 plus communities; in the process making himself hundreds of billions of dollars. Non Exclusive List: 1) The Retail Tax Base (much of the competition of Amazon had to collect taxes and in industry of people switching over 1-2 percent,
this 5-10% advantage was Unfair) 2) Property Tax Base (aside from devastating State Sales Tax Revenues), Amazon crushed Local Communities tax bases by building facilities that often time were subsidized by taxpayers of other States. Very strange indeed that this is allowed to

Aujourd’hui, j’ai un peu de #temps (je blague), et je tente un #thread #scpo sur la #démocratie, parce que c’est un tout petit peu d‘actualité. Et oui, je vais mettre des #mèmes Internet parce que, en vrai autocrate, je trouve cela très très drôle. Prêts ?
2) D’abord, la #démocratie, ce n’est pas la #République (la chose publique). La République, c’est moi...euh, c’est quand le #pouvoir est exercé par tout ou partie du peuple (exit la monarchie) et que les élus représentent plus que le peuple (la #Nation dixit #Sieyes).
3) Les #députés représentent l’intérêt #général plus que le peuple. Utile pour voter une loi impopulaire, comme l’interdiction de la peine de mort (#Badinter), ou la taxe carbone sur l’essence. Encore faut-il bien prouver l’intérêt général (n’est ce pas les gilets jaunes ?).

So @TuckerCarlson finally gets its, most of us already knew, and in plain sight so will you.

No greater insult or contempt has ever been visited on ordinary working people than the advent of waged work and stealing the fruits of the bulk of our labour and calling it profit. Organised labour has gained us many hard won concessions and protections,
but even today a wage does not in any way represent the value of our labour, mind and body, it is the lesser share of the fruits of our labour, the rest is taken by the companies or bosses we work for, maximised for their own advantage [1].
No one better exemplifies this theft than Jeff #Bezos, the richest man in the world, and what he calls his, ‘#Amazon winnings’. Those ‘winnings’ were made on the backs of Amazon workers who are paid a pittance whilst generating the obscene wealth that Jeff Bezos

@JeffBezos @amazon Image
#JeffBezos just became the first person on earth to garner a record $200 billion of wealth. #Bezos isn’t just the wealthiest man but the only person to have that amount of money in modern history.

His wealth is double that of the world’s second-richest person and Microsoft founder @BillGates.

Non tutti quelli che usano #Amazon sanno che la creatura di #Bezos condivide molte informazioni relative ai propri utenti tramite il profilo "community" associato a ciascun account: se siete tra questi, vi consiglio di spendere due minuti per proteggere i vostri dati.

Quello che sto per dire sarà probabilmente arcinoto a molti di voi, quindi non aspettatevi uno scoop inaudito: si tratta semplicemente di una mini-guida realizzata a beneficio dei tanti utenti Amazon che non sono ancora al corrente della potenziale "invasività" del servizio. /2
Partiamo dall'inizio. Il noto principio della Privacy by Default, introdotto nell’articolo 25 del GDPR e punto cardine delle misure tecniche ed organizzative imposte al titolare del trattamento al fine di tutelare i dati da trattamenti potenzialmente illeciti, non sembra /3

I don't think I can go back to selling books through #Amazon again. I never liked doing so, but here's a brief thread on the problem for #writers and #publishers in the era of #Bezos
First off, I really recommend @FranklinFoer's book World Without Mind, which has a good bit on the way that tech and algorithms have changed the way information is taken in and perceived, but also valued and distributed.
It's got a good bit on Bezos and how he commodified info.
The result of social media was to act as though giving a platform really elevated voices, but by now we should know it was all an act. The bot stories show how easily you can either buy or create a majority, and even seeing half the reopen shit was astroturfed.

Israeli spyware Pegasus, purchased by Saudi for $55M last year, "allows customers to secretly listen to calls, record keystrokes, read messages & track internet history on targeted phone; use phone’s microphone camera as surveillance devices." #Bezos
"Because of those sweepingly invasive capabilities, Israel classifies the spyware as a weapon. The company must obtain approval from the Defense Ministry for its sale to foreign governments. Saudi Arabia paid $55 million last year for its use, according to Israeli news reports."
Who hated Khashoggi, threatening to "use a bullet" on him? Saudi prince MBS

Trump's pal David Pecker tried to blackmail Jeff Bezos. Big mistake. Huge.

"Any personal embarrassment AMI [publisher of National Enquirer] could cause me takes a back seat...If in my position I can’t stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?" -@JeffBezos
Jeff Bezos: David Pecker was “apoplectic” about our investigation...the Saudi angle seems to hit a particularly sensitive nerve.

AMI sources say that in return for the catch & kill operation, Trump introduced Pecker to funding sources: Prince MBS.

I cancelled #Netflix a while ago. I urge you to consider doing the same. #CancelNetflix. Obama has a 2-year content production contract with Netflix since Soros/Susan Rice took over.…
Yes I know you want to be entertained, you want to binge watch, but your dollars are going straight to the #EnemyOfThePeople. You give your money to #Soros/#Bezos. You are donating to the enemies of @POTUS. #BoycottAmazon #BoycottWAPO #BoycottNetflix #Trump2020
I started reading about the #C_A a few months ago. #ThisIsNotAGame. This civilian '#Intelligence"agency is at the heart of the #ShadowGovernement (#DeepStateSwamp). The #C_A was run by #JohnBrennan during the Obama years. Think of the damage done with a man like him in power.

Phénomène majeur, masqué par l'ère #Trump, déjà noté ici: l'appropriation par de grands milliardaires industriels, surtout des nouvelles technologies, des journaux et #médias US qui restait jusqu'ici la propriété de groupes familiaux "spécialisés" dans la #presse...RT+1 #àlire
2) Jusqu'ici, cette domination des milliardaires US à la tête des journaux US passe assez inaperçue car beaucoup des titres sont plutôt de tradition "libérale", critique envers #Trump (le Washington Post de Bezos, le Atlantic de Jobs etc.)et grâce à des garde-fous déontologiques
3) Mais des amis et financeurs de #Trump (Adelson, Ricketts) ont déjà acheté des journaux et mis au pas des rédactions voire liquider des titres en cas de syndicalisation. A terme, risque d'1 évolution renforcée vers la ploutocratie de la démocratie US.…
