I’m wondering if this is right but jeff bezoar rich not the same as let’s say drake being rich or taylor swift bts etc bc they offer a service they make music, sell it, go on tour like they make tons of money yes but they offer a service or product like you’re buying their music, so you get the music you buy the concert tickets you see the concert etc. with jeff bitch face and trump they aren’t they created the company and now can sit on their ass and make money from others doing the gruel work which is fine i guess if they pay ppl fairly but they don’t so like for example there was that ceo who only takes home 70k a year so all his employees can also make the same... that’s like fair but jeff besoz pays amazon workers not enough am i correctly getting the gist of it?
Definitely a good start! I do want to say, it’s important to then look at those seemingly less sinister examples (T Swift, Drake, etc) even closer. What are they doing for the public? Are they giving their money back to the community in a meaningful way? Are they supporting politicians who will fundamentally uproot the system that has created society’s problems? Are they speaking up about important issues? Often, celebrities will give money to charities, which is great. But charities can’t possibly resolve the core of their respective problems. That requires the government to be involved. So if those rich people aren’t supporting policies and candidates who will do that, be very weary of them. It’s sad to say that many of them genuinely don’t go that far with their goodness. That’s why we must tax the rich.
