ub iwerks

We enjoyed this interview with the heiress of an immense entertainment conglomerate who has been campaigning that the ultra-wealthy be made to pay their fair burden in taxes so that workers can earn a living wage and that the public institutions and infrastructure that we all rely on and benefit from can be fully-funded.
No progress ever happened by people advocating for their own self-interest alone—as is the natural inclination of lobbies that fight to retain every last cent they’ve made off the efforts and sacrifice of the individuals in their employ, but rather, “Things really change when people are traitors to their class, and my class needs some really good traitors these days.” Read or listen to the whole interview with All Things Considered at the link up top.
