If we have a fight with Amazon, it is our basic fight to make the most of good things.
In a fight with Amazon, you might argue that it’s wrong for Jeff Bezos to have so much money as a result of creating his Amazon business. You might be less inclined to argue if his workers were well paid and praised their jobs.
But, in a fight with Amazon or not, Amazon is a great thing for many people, which is exactly why it has been so profitable for its creator.

The Angel of Divine Love now comes alive in every person connected to Amazon.

I like Amazon
Although I may be in a fight with Amazon, I like Amazon for several reasons. First, I like that I can shop for myself. I’m housebound, so prior to being able to buy my groceries from Amazon’s Prime Pantry I had to spend $15 to $30 just to hire someone to go to the store for me, with my list.
Then, almost inevitably, the person would come back with half the things I wanted. The person almost always thought they had better choices for me. It was most dispiriting.
Second, I like, really like, that Amazon is helping to save our Post Office. Prior to Amazon using USPS, I used to pay more to have things delivered by USPS from different online companies. Even though the USPS cost of shipping was lower, and the speed of delivery was MUCH faster, I had to pay more to use USPS.
In the case of USPS, you might say we are in a fight with Amazon to save our Post Office.
I understand that wealth inequality is a buzzword for super rich individuals versus hard working people who can’t support their own life, much less a family on their wages.
I have been an advocate of a living wage for AGES. Recently a woman from USPS explained to me that because Santa Fe has a $15/hr minimum wage, people from Albuquerque, about 60 miles away, come here for jobs, but then hate the commute and call in sick all the time.
As divided as our country is by politics, as people we can all appreciate that for things to be good, really good, they need to be as widespread as the reach of Amazon.
We can join the fight with Amazon by boycotting, or more productively, we can join the fight with Amazon for easy access to products we need, a healthy post office with its workers secure in their jobs, and for well paid, happy Amazon workers.
