In this multipart investigative series we will explore how Amazon uses its various spheres of control to manipulate our ideologies surrounding labor, consumer rights, mass surveillance, and corporate dependency. Part one will cover Amazon’s newly expanding use of propaganda through social media and advertorial content, specifically the company’s creation of the Prime Day Concert, their ‘FC Ambassadors,’ and a in-house blog. Part two will explore Amazon’s anti-union training, and the reality of working in an Amazon warehouse. We will examine the safety of their warehouses, the suicides and deaths that have occurred, and what it is like to go on an Amazon FC tour. Part three (and possibly four) will examine how Amazon has partnered with the US Government’s Department of Justice, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and many privately-owned surveillance companies to expand their state-wide technological monopoly. The series will end on the political ramifications of this newly expanding capitalist specter, and how some current organizations, even presidential candidates, plan to stop this.
