I Quit Amazon to Save Democracy

Consider it a New Year’s resolution

This block in North Beach is made up of mostly shuttered businesses. Earlier, a homeless man was sleeping on that pile of cardboard strewn across the sidewalk. Photo by author.

When I told my daughter I was going to quit Amazon Prime she said, “Oh, no! Don't do it! I’ll lose my free shipping!”

And yes, losing free shipping and two-day delivery is going to be a (pretty minor) sacrifice. But isn’t it worth it to save democracy?
