Doug Casey on Class Warfare

• By Doug Casey

Many Americans on the left are asking themselves this question. And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – the Democrats' new rising star – is certainly no exception. Just look at what AOC said in a recent interview.

It's not to say someone like Bill Gates, for example, or Warren Buffett are immoral people. I do not believe that.

I do think 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.

AOC, of course, isn't alone. Two weeks ago, The Huffington Post published a piece titled "Should Billionaires Even Exist?" The New York Times followed up a few days later when it ran a similar piece titled "Abolish Billionaires."

In short, class warfare is no longer just a radical leftist idea. It's gone mainstream.
