"Does he deserve it all though?"

Yes. He earned it.

"Amazon didn't get where it is today solely because of Bezos."

Not only Bezos gets paid by amazon

"It also got where it is by paying shitty wages to its workers, and it got where it is by taking advantage of publicly-funded infrastructure."

So people chose to work there and the public infrastructure thing is no different from everyone and every business.

"The idea that Bezos works 10,000 times harder than other people or is 10,000 times more talented than them is wrong."

The proof would need to be numerically calculable. Like maybe worth, income. Of course anyone can prove themselves his equal, by going earning it.
