It’s interesting to see how people can be so willing to justify that Jeff Bezos
“earned” his billions. He might have earned his first few million, but not billions.

I doubt anyone can name a single billionaire that is not sitting on top of a natural or government sanctioned monopoly. I just don’t think it’s possible to be a billionaire without some form of government support.

And if billionaires can write the laws, well, they an institutionalize a very subtle form of slavery. In modern times, we call that, “monopsony”.
