Re: “The Dark Side of Amazon

When visitors from the Soviet Union came to the United States in the sixties and seventies, they wanted to visit the supermarkets. Why? Because these "cathedrals" were so captivating. Brick and mortar retail is a key part of American tradition, and economic strength. The threat posed by the Internet, the Amazons, is that we are removing the oxygen supply to our culture. Will our children have to choose between being a warehouse picker or wearing the brown suit of a delivery driver? It's up to us. Keep America alive. Spend time on the street or at the mall. Connect with people. Connect in stores and businesses. Connect in parks and libraries. Understand, and cherish, the value that comes from the human side of commerce.
