Amazon’s Whole Foods Moves Closer to the Satanic Merchant Model of Marking and Tracking Every Customer by Brian Shilhavy, Editor, Health Impact News
He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666. (Revelation 13:15-18)
20 years ago, when my family and I were forced to move back to the U.S. after spending several years in the Philippines, we found a wonderful new food market in California called “Whole Foods.”
It wasn’t perfect, as it still had tons of commodity food mass produced, but it also had organic and other food options that were better choices than one had in the Big Box grocery stores. As we settled back into life in the U.S., whenever we had to travel we would plan our routes to be able to stop at locations that had a Whole Foods market, as we just didn’t feel comfortable with the cheap fast food restaurants.
But then Jeff Bezos bought Whole Foods and merged it together with his Amazon.com platform. I stopped shopping as often at Whole Foods stores after that, because I knew that the purchase by Amazon.com was not going to improve the chain. I had already stopped my online shopping at Amazon.com, due to privacy concerns and also the fact that they had become the “Walmart” of the online marketplace, driving other ecommerce markets out of business.
My own online store had stopped selling on Amazon.com years before, when we no longer had access to our customers who purchased our products at Amazon.com. They went from becoming our partner, to becoming our competitor by stealing our customers.
Sure enough, as soon as Amazon bought Whole Foods, they gave up all their goals of offering more foods that did not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the future.
