Amazon - Forerunner of Mark of The Beast?
« on: Yesterday at 02:13:53 PM »
Amazon, the giant Retail Company, now has plans to open new stores where you won't be allowed in without your personal Amazon Barcode. You will then select what you want and it will be payed automatically via your Amazon account. Shoppers without an Amazon account or code will not be allowed to buy anything. Evil or what?

Amazon is my Walmart.  But I was going to hell anyway.  :)
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Pray for me, a wretched sinner.

Amazon deliver on Sundays.

If a second covid wave hits, some say many of the small, independant retail stores will be closed forever, leaving the global 'Big Boys' such as Amazon to takeover.
Who among you does not have an Amazon account?

If they're like their much-publicised pop-up shops, I wouldn't hold my breath. Or get my blood pressure going, either.

Who among you does not have a smartphone?

I'm not saying Jeff Bezos or Amazon are evil but the way things are trending it looks like more power and wealth will be concentrated in the hands of a few Mega-rich global corps forcing us to buy and sell using their exclusive digital wallet 'marks'....

Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, Microsoft Pay, Samsung Pay, etc.

Now imagine they are all merged into one, and you are forced to 'register an account' (heard that before, somewhere). Probably, somewhere down the line, we will be asked to sign-in using Biometric Data. Who has a smartphone with a fingerprint unlock already?



If you haven't got a hand, you will have to use another part of your biometrics...?
And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment.

Bezos and Amazon are evil because they treat their workers like trash. But you're probably used to that, so NBD.

The Daily Mail actually referred to an Article from the Sunday Times
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/buy-now-pay-later-as-amazon-go-prepares-to-hit-british-high-streets-vp076mtjr

But I know what you mean about the Daily Mail and that rag The Sun...
(reminds me of a Company I once worked for where the Boss used to say 'we don't employ Sun readers here!')

The Daily Mail has really degraded over the years...

Now I know what you mean, well done!
Just saw on wiki:
''In response to potential discrimination against low-income people, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and New Jersey have passed legislation banning cashless stores and retailers.''

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Go

I have changed my mind, Amazon and Bezos are Evil
'' Food stamps and public assistance for low income people are not accepted,[28] nor are customers without smartphones, or with smartphones that do not have the Amazon Go app downloaded''

Elon Musk is right - Amazon is too big and powerful - it needs to be broken up. But then Musk is evil too - his starlink satellites will ultimately will be used to control people.

All these global mega corps will make slaves out of us all. Sorry to paint a dim picture but it's all been prophecised:

… Each person will be registered; not only every facet of his affairs and his life, but his every word, every movement of his mental faculties will be under constant surveillance so that he will lose the habit of thinking for himself out of fear that the expression on his face might involuntarily reflect something incompatible with the authority of the world ruler, i.e., Antichrist. Everyone will wear “stone masks.” All labor, every square inch of ground, every grain of wheat will be under the authority of Antichrist…

Amazon go stores won't have checkouts, so fewer staff employed, so all those shop workers losing their jobs now due to covid won't even have Amazon jobs to go to.
Bezos is automating his warehouses too - less jobs. Meanwhile, widows and orphans are evicted or driven into slums. Welcome to the Brave New World.  :(

People have been worrying about automation for a century now--probably longer. Whether it turns out terribly or wonderfully has more to do with politics than technology imo.

I don't like to ridicule the notion that the mark of the beast might be something quite physical and literal, given how the Antichrist and world power will be interwined and how microchip technology has been evolving quickly. I don't like to downplay evil corporations either.

But that's just quick shopping at a particular store... It's not much different from having an e-mail or a Facebook account.

But this will be just the start
''In October 2016, the Business Insider reported they had seen internal Amazon documents that described Amazon opening up as many as 2,000 stores, over the next ten years''
Whose paying for Bezos vanity space project Blue Origin and his divorce?  ???

Those 'particular stores' will become a monopoly. Once you accept the 'mark' you will be trapped.

Those shops will not appear overnight. Make a noise if you don't want one in your community.

While looking this up, I came across another Amazon project from 2019: Clicks & Mortars, 10 pop-up shops on various UK high streets, giving exposure to small-time vendors. One of them did function for a while, somewhere in the north. I could find no evidence of the other nine. Did they ever exist?

And you're trying to tell me that there will be 30 rolled out without a hitch? Let alone 2000? Get real. And get organising, if you're that concerned about thin air.
