Jeff Bezos's Ex Giving Away All His Money

She should give it to the owners and employees of small businesses that have been put out of business by Amazon.

If a small business couldn't compete with Amazon then they deserved to go out of business.

That would mean that they were solely competing on price, which is weak (and likely meant inferior products, even more likely outsourced to China), since an in-store experience should easily be able to at least match -- pound-for-pound -- what Amazon can provide in convenience trade-offs.

They could provide complimentary whisky and blowjobs non-alcoholic wine and blessings, but it's all for nowt if the customer "shops around" on the phone they carry with them 24/7. Expert Knowledge and recommendations? It'll get you "I'll think about" before they buy exactly what you recommend somewhere more "competitively priced".

That's not to mention this horrid year, and how Amazon used its lobbyists and media empire to push the lockdowns and riots that knocked small shopkeepers out of the game. The state guard and its tanks were deployed to protect Amazon distribution centres but if a small business owner lifted one hand against the woke rioters, he was torn down as a bigot.
