Here is a pretty good article in Chico's "alternative paper" (The Chico News 
and Review), about how Jeff runs the heart of Amazon, its warehouses:

 I was reading an article about Amazon in Seattle this morning and how Jeff 
Bezos is a libertarian and we know how cruel that thinking is. it's sink or 
swim, "I've got mine and to hell with everyone else."  Not only that you 
probably noticed that the previously apolitical software programmers decided 
that libertarianism was the "cat's meow" back in the 1990s.  Society is doomed 
with that  kind of thinking.  It's very Dickensonian.
 Are rich really that stupid?  Must be or wealth has fogged their minds and 
they are one pointed about one thing: making more money even though they have 
plenty already.  They are destroying society.  Not that this is anything new it 
has happened before and regardless of what we try to do history just repeats 
 The article on Amazon:
 I was last in Seattle in 2007 and it has lost it's charm.  Downtown looked 
like something out of "Bladerunner".

   The current situation is shameful. It is lying with statistics, based on an 
outmoded tax structure - Let the ultra-wealthy give something back, besides the 
minimum. The only reason that chart is trotted out, is to quiet those who know 
they are being screwed, and to appease the very rich. 

 How is someone worth a billion dollars, going to miss a hundred million or so? 
The ultra rich use a disproportionate share of the common, and they should pay 
their fair share, without any tax breaks. If they did that, and corporations 
chipped in their fair share, that would be good enough for me.

   Yes, I agree that a larger safety net is necessary, and the bucks for that 
should come from the ultra wealthy who shirk their national responsibility, by 
evading taxes.

 A new CBO study shows that ‘the rich’ don’t just pay their ‘fair share,’ they 
pay almost everybody’s share.
 Otherwise, we will continue to see the middle class disappear, and be headed 
for a second revolution, eventually. 

 Part of the issue, is that corporate titans are seen as great visionaries and 
geniuses, instead of simply being true to their charter, which is to turn as 
big a profit, as possible, resources and populations be damned. We need real 
leaders, not Warren Buffet and a bunch of unethical salesmen, running this

 One of the ways of doing it would be guaranteed annual income.  That's a 
safety net and keeps people from becoming desperate.  In fact the crime 
reduction it might produce might pay for it.  You can look up the different 
countries implementing it and see how they are going to pay for it.  Otherwise 
limit how much money anyone can have because we're seeing that billionaires are 
mentally ill and don't deserve the power they wield.
 Americans are so brainwashed with a Tarzan like "capitalism good, socialism 
bad" meme that its difficult to get any decent change and it'll just send us 
back to the middle ages where there are two classes the extremely wealthy and 
the extremely poor.  Don't stand for it!
 Nothing brings this out more than than the holiday season or "Crassmust".

   Yes, but I don't know how that would be possible. This area I now live in, 
was a paradise for the natives, for 3,000 years - no inter-tribal warfare, and 
absolute respect for territorial boundaries. But, they had nothing, and lived 
entirely off the land. I like my tech, and modern life, and not sure how that 
would happen, without monetary rewards.
