This is an important article but it is also true that the situation is trickY. Consider the way Amazon was able to provide food purchased online and delivered to people isolated in quarantine and/or without cars. That saved the lives of thousands who lacked the means of ‘classy’ leftists who claim to speak for the working class and drive around in fossil fueled automobiles…..You can see in one way the truth of the ‘takeover’ claim, and I am no fan of big tech orgs like Amazon. This happened suddenly with decisive force. Suddenly itaccepted food stamps as many spent their whole monthly sum at Amazon.
And Amazon solved, its seems, a problem of computational economics where the left floundered for a century in the so-called calculations. The usual capitalist digging its own grave.That of course is an example of what Marx himself noted many times.
