All over Europe on Black Friday, Amazon workers protest their grotesque mistreatment. (WHY NOT HERE?)

We need a push to break up Bezos' empire, and one grand boycott of his holdings. There have beenmoves against Whole Foods for very different reasons—for its supporting Drag Queen Story Hour, foradvertising on Breitbart, and now for Whole Foods Magazines naming Mitch McConnell "Person of the Year." 

So what if all those outraged liberals and conservatives joined forces to make Bezos feel the pain?Wouldn't that be something, in this fractured polity?
