  1. Classic capital strike. People need Amazon warehouses for jobs at least a little bit more than Amazon needs to set up new warehouses(or at least Amazon is counting on them thinking that), and Amazon can move its capital easier than communities can move. Amazon is so powerful that various regions must compete to get Amazon jobs, and governments that are supposed to serve their people will end up serving Amazon’s interests(because the voters will serve Amazon’s interests because they need the jobs). It’s a perfect subversion of democracy because you don’t have to target the government, you can pressure the voters directly and they have to vote your interests if they want jobs. When capital has this much power, government isn’t democratic, it’s plutocratic, no matter if elections are free and open or not.
