AOC and a sign of the times: System that allows billionaires is ‘immoral’, by Ben Feuerherd.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview on Monday that she believes a system that allows people to become billionaires is “immoral.”
The New York Democrat made the statement while responding to a question from writer Ta-Nehisi Coates at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event in Harlem.
“I do think that a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
She clarified that billionaires themselves are not morally questionable — but the economic system that allows them to grow so wealthy is the problem.
Perhaps, but how would you change the system to prevent billionaires from arising? Take care that the cure isn’t worse than the alleged disease.
AOC is making some of the most aggressive anti-capitalist statements that I have ever seen reported by mainstream media in the fashion they are reported. And the kids are soaking it up. There have been anti-American radicals in the past but it was always made clear they were outliers/ MSM does not treat her that way. They treat as being part of mainstream discussion.
This gal is very dangerous for capitalism.
