People wonder (sometimes writing me hostile messages) why a hardened communist like my own bad self would endorse a right-wing reformer like Bernie Sanders in the 2020 election. This is a good example.
The corporation which owns the controlling share of Whole Foods is amazon dot com. The man with the controlling interest in amazon is Jeff Bezos. Bezos is known for a couple of things in our community. He is the clown who cheated on his faithful wife with an old hag of a feminist. He also owns the scumbag corporate journal Washington ComPost, which regularly argues for censoring the internet and punishing dissidents like all of us.
Bezos’ company, which he has never done any real work for, and which provides him with a staggering one hundred and twenty million U.S. dollars a day in unearned income, is now telling the people who slave for their master that they are on their own.
Of course, if Bernie won the presidency (which he won’t) he would never do the right thing, which is to throw Bezos (and all his rich friends) into a work camp, liquidate this stolen wealth, and give local whole foods stores to local workers to run in the public interest. Even so, he might actually fight to give every one of these workers the right to see a doctor, and he might force Bezos and his rich friends to give their slaves some paid time off when they get sick. Those are steps in the right direction.
If you’d like to read this astonishing story, you can go to vice.
