I need something for consumption and the rest just to guide policy in extremely undemocratic ways.

No matter how much money you make, it should be one person one vote. The fact that billionaires with no democratic legitimacy turn around and use their wealth to shape our public policy is a gross distortion of any democratic principles.

The Gates Foundation has $50 billion. Gates has upwards of a $100 billion. The idea that oh boy he'd just be left with $1 billion for personal use, how sad, come on! We have to get rid of this myth of good billionaires.

Microsoft is an enormous firm that buys up other firms. The idea that society owes Bill Gates a tremendous debt is a joke. For what, years spent bundling a subpar internet browser with a subpar operating system?

Sure all the infrastructure that allowed Microsoft to do any fucking thing originated with publicly funded state efforts, but that's fine.

Average american family makes $60,000 a year, maybe $6 million over a hundred years. Bill Gates is crying about only having $5 billion? And we have to reassure him? All these men are the same. They're high on their own supply.

These men should have no more weight on public policy than any ordinary person. Nobody elected them. Tax the shit out of them. For all their talk of coming from nothing which is hot bullshit, their absolute fear of coming from $5 billion is telling.

The philanthropy of the wealthy is about power and control posing as assistance. It's a shake-down.
