Original Message Well, why not? I mean...they are killing us and future generations in so many ways, including, in many cases, quite literally. Time for some serious retaliation, I think; don't you? We are their life's blood by buying THEIR SHIT, with our endless addiction to commercialism. Why are we helping them do us in?

Here's a an old warrior who sees 'The Beast' for what it is and is taking a noble and powerful stand. I think his action is an example of a good start in making them fade away into financial abyss and ultimately their'death';

An Open Letter To Amazon By Daniel Ellsberg

Open Letter to Amazon.com
By Daniel Ellsberg on December 3, 2010

To Customer Service and Jeff Bezos,

Iím disgusted by Amazonís cowardice and servility in abruptly terminating its hosting of the Wikileaks website, in the face of threats from Senator Joe Lieberman and other Congressional right-wingers. I want no further association with any company that encourages legislative and executive officials to aspire to Chinaís control of information and deterrence of whistle-blowing.

For the last several years, Iíve been spending over $100 a month on new and used books from Amazon. Thatís over. I have contacted Customer Service to ask Amazon to terminate immediately my membership in Amazon Prime and my Amazon credit card and account, to delete my contact and credit information from their files and to send me no more notices.

I understand that many other regular customers feel as I do and are responding the same way. Good: the broader and more immediate the boycott, the better.I hope that these others encourage their contact lists to do likewise and to let Amazon know exactly why theyíre shifting their business. Iíve asked friends today to suggest alternatives. Iíve removed all links to Amazon from my site, and Iíll be exploring service from Powellís Books, IndieBound, Biblio and others.

So far Amazon has spared itself the further embarrassment of trying to explain its action openly. This would be a good time for Amazon insiders who know and perhaps can document the political pressures that were brought to bearóand the details of the hasty kowtowing by their bossesóto leak that information. They can send it to Wikileaks (now on servers outside the US), to mainstream journalists or bloggers, or perhaps to a site like antiwar.com, which has now appropriately ended its book-purchasing association with Amazon and called a boycott.

If youíd like to read further analysis of your cowardice, I suggest you see this excellent article by Glenn Greenwald.

Yours (no longer),

Daniel Ellsberg
