Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) demanded during an interview on Monday that billionaires give up control of their companies and give up the power that they have earned if they want to be considered “ethical.”
“If Jeff Bezos wants to be a good person, you turn Amazon into a worker cooperative,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “You know, like, not what do I do with all of this money that I have created with this unjust system and, if, usually you’re a billionaire that means that you control a massive system.”
“It means that you own oil supplies, it means that you control textiles, it means that you have a massive labor force under your control and to be ethical if you’re a billionaire today the thing that you need to do is give up control and power,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “So, I don’t want your money, as much as we want your power.”
It’s the leftist mindset. Let someone else do the heavy lifting, and then you just steal it from them.
That’s “ethical” in progworld.
