Nope. This lazy, selfish fag thought he could go to a store, buy products produced by someone he has no contact with, and sell it on a platform he has no investment in, and make a killing for the big job of driving his car around for an hour. He deserves it, this is capitalism weeding out the useless cancer. Guy is literally a 4th level middleman.

Yes, he could market his new business in the local paper or online, maybe lease a building to sell this stuff in, find another online marketplace to contract with, or even start his own.

You know stores just fill up their supply again? Selling via amazon would supply areas where it's hard to get this stuff, otherwise they'd just buy from cheaper competition.

What do you mean, couldn't get? He's selling it. It's not like hand sanitizer is so expensive that a 500% markup makes it so prohibitively expensive that nobody can afford it. It's just slightly more expensive soap dude, calm down.

There's a reason why people like using eBay and Amazon to fuel their scams.

Is he selling fake soap?

>> No.17804249


He said himself he isn't willing to sell it directly due to community judgement. He was trying to peddle it through Amazon, which involves several additional layers of purchasing time on top of the higher cost. Say that discourages even one elderly person from being able to get it in due time, and they get infected. That is on his hands. Think globally.

>> No.17804280


No it isn't, that person had the exact same opportunity to buy soap this guy had. He wants to sell it online to avoid psychopaths that want to hang him for selling soap, chill out man. It's not like he's one of those assholes buying "investment properties" with nonexistent mortgage money.

Tribes are inherent to the human species brainlet. We are pack animals, codified to coexist and live in groups of ~50 people. If your house is burning, getting robbed, or your family is getting assaulted your neighbors are going to be your first line of defense when you're incapacitated.
