The state of modern politics is enough to drive anyone crazy, but I think one of the crazier parts of this is probably the fact that the Democrats in our society think they’re Robin Hood.
For some reason, the idea that being a rich person in our society is some sort of evil has pervaded mainstream thought, and frankly, I think that’s a bit ridiculous. I’ve met many rich people in my time here on the spinning blue marble, and most of them have been charitable and lovely people. They probably do more for others than they’re ever given credit for, and to be honest, I think a lot of people would be surprised to hear about just how much they do for others as they don’t really talk about it much.
But if you listen to people like Elizabeth Warren, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders and many other Democrats who bought into leftist radicalism, the rich need to “pay their fair share,” and Democrats are only too happy to cheer wildly every time they mention it.
