Amazon is a crazy big corporation. So big, in fact, it’s hard to even wrap your head around just how big it is. Web hosting, groceries, streaming video, home surveillance, holiday gifts… you can get almost anything from Jeff Bezos’ mega-company (including uranium ore, apparently?!)—if not on-demand, then less than a week later. But labor disputes, privacy concerns, antitrust concerns, tax loopholes, and Bezos’ staggering personal wealth have perplexed the tech giant’s place in popular culture, complicating everyday Americans’ relationships with consumerism and democracy. How did we get here? What can we do about it? And isn’t it all kind of silly?
