I won’t be impressed before they start delivering AK47’s and hookers.
While it may seem really convenient to have a mega-corporation delivering everything you could ever need right to your doorstep with free shipping and killer prices, there’s some issues with that concept.
For one, it gives complete control over the people’s purchasing decisions to a centralized authority, which is going to make all it’s decisions based on profitability. Or, if that authority is controlled by Jews, on what hurts White people the most effectively.
This is going to push the world further towards globalism, further towards buying cheap crap from China while our own industries disintegrate before our eyes.
Also, it’s enabling a lifestyle where you basically never have to leave your house.
Why wash your clothes – or your dishes – when you can just order more from Amazon for just $4.99 with free shipping?
Amazon’s new push into the grocery market just makes this more extreme.
If you can get your food delivered after ordering them online, why ever even get out?
Amazon agreed to buy the upscale grocery chain Whole Foods for $13.4 billion, in a deal that will instantly transform the company that pioneered online shopping into a merchant with physical outposts in hundreds of neighborhoods across the country.
You know you’ve made it when a Whole Foods lands in your neighborhood.
The acquisition, announced Friday, is a reflection of both the sheer magnitude of the grocery business — about $800 billion in annual spending in the United States — and a desire to turn Amazon into a more frequent shopping habit by becoming a bigger player in food and beverages. After almost a decade selling groceries online, Amazon has failed to make a major dent on its own as consumers have shown a stubborn urge to buy items like fruits, vegetables and meat in person.
Buying Whole Foods also represents a major escalation in the company’s long-running battle with Walmart, the largest grocery retailer in the United States, which has been struggling to play catch-up in internet shopping. On Friday, Walmart announced a $310 million deal to acquire the internet apparel retailer Bonobos and last year it agreed to pay $3.3 billion for Jet.com and put Jet’s chief executive, Marc Lore, in charge of Walmart’s overall e-commerce business.
“Make no mistake, Walmart under no circumstances can lose the grocery wars to Amazon,” said Brittain Ladd, a strategy and supply chain consultant who formerly worked with Amazon on its grocery business. “If Walmart loses the grocery battle to Amazon, they have no chance of ever dethroning Amazon as the largest e-commerce player in the world.”
Amazon is doing a great job pioneering the field of reducing the intermediaries in commerce. They’re cutting out the retail stores, the marketing departments, large chunks of the import/export industry, and so on.
They’re also working on ways to eliminate as many jobs as possible from this whole chain of merchandise delivery.
Deliveries will be made with drones. Warehouses will become fully automated. Sales and marketing are being replaced with AI algorithms.
And Amazon is rapidly taking over every segment of the market. Movies, music, books, electronics, groceries, you name it.
So, huh, since we’re not really producing anything, how are people going to be making money and spending their time in this “new economy?”
Even Mickey Mouse “marketing” jobs are becoming obsolete now that sales are determined by Amazon’s suggestions and product display order. Actual human beings are being completely cut out from the economy – at least, in the west.
This is going to cause huge problems – and fast.
But never mind that. Let’s just keep importing the entire population of Africa so they work the jobs we don’t want.
