Why Billionaires Won’t Save Us | Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj | Netflix
The wealthiest Americans are often celebrated for their prolific giving, but is it altruism or is it all just hype? Hasan dissects how the ultra-rich use philanthropy to get richer, distract from the injustices on which they built their fortunes, and dictate politics and policy.

    During Dewight D Eisenhower’s term, the corporate tax rate was 90%. It force corporations to invest in the company and employees and not themselves when they showed surpluses I.e. profit. Growing the country and the middle class that made the US a world power and a former force for good in the world. No corporation left then like the gop loves to act like will happen.

    A shame, honestly, that this is nothing but talk. People in power will give a sense of false liberty, by allowing you to think you can change society, when, in fact, it was changed since the beginning of time. Only way to change this is through a very hard mind process that will allow you to truly see, that even although your cage looks big, it is, in the end, still a cage. “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”

    When the rich own the personalities of Washington, the rich decide what the rules are and how to avoid.. On top of that they use subsidize Contracting to support themselves through Washington. This is how come all laws did not apply to the insurrection that Donald Trump participated with supporting cpac funding for "save America March" act of insurrection, treason as a tax write-off and part of the deficit that is handed off to societee to protect them means to disenfranchise the world. .. I feel Congressman decided not to press charges. And it went away no a just got put on hold.. But that was what was created as legal. Was it just.. no... And that is what America is trying to share with the world as a valuable commodity.

    Taxing the rich by changing the tax codes is a good idea; that will not happen; BECAUSE changing the tax code is a threat to the very system that creates all political power. Political influence is how the tax codes got the way they are. In conjunction with writing the tax codes, the wealthy corrupted the Supreme Court which then allowed "Citizens United" and the destruction of the "Voting Rights Act", and the creation of the "Patriot Act" to utterly destroy democracy. The result of these rulings is that average citizens don't have the right to vote and even if "Individual People" tried to work around the sham that is the USGov, the moneyed interest that owns the media and writes the propaganda also scrubs the internet to hide the truth and suppresses the whistleblowers by public torcher, thereby presenting all of us an example of what can happen to anyone that presents a real threat to "The System". Additionally: The 1% of the 1% of the richest in the world, will turn their power on any of the "rank and file" billionaires that attempt to change the system. All together; Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and Mark Zuckerberg, combined with many others and the institution that is Google, will not be able to stop the momentum of the "Capital" system that is driving mankind over the cliff of extinction; BECAUSE it is the CAPITALIST SYSTEM that is in control of the most powerful military weapons ever created. The US Military is not one man, it is not a few men. No one has control of the US Military, the largest most dominant military ever created; because everyone, from top generals to lowest recruit is dependent upon the capital that flows from the monster that is the "Capitalist System". Guess what the military is dependents on to function; THE EARTHS RESOURCES. Fear of others drives the need for weapons, energy is needed to produce weapons, harvesting and consuming energy destroys the environment. "We The People" are collectively destroying our planet primally because we are greedy for ourselves and fearful of others. What we are witnessing in our lifetime is the realization of the ultimate goal of capitalism, which is: The concentration of control of all the capital, all the resources, all of the mean of production, and all of the means of distribution; at the very top of the economic structure. The desire to CONTROL is driven completely by FEAR & GREED, the twin fatal flaws of human nature. If you can find an old dictionary, look up the definition of "Capitalism", and you will then believe what I am saying. This definition is being dumbed down because it is a threat to the system, as is all knowledge that is a threat to the Capitalist system. To save the world we need to eliminate greed and fear. Start with yourself. Sincerely wishing you the Best of luck with that. PS I should never say never, I do hope that I will be proven wrong!

    Ahh yes one man who’s whole life is predicated I’m hating rich people and doing everything to take away what they have because he’s not rich. America, land of the your only allowed to posses up to 10 million dollars. Real cute Most of us normal people support taxes for the ultra wealthy, the probablem is capital gains tax affects more unwealthy than it does wealthy. We talk about raising taxes on the Uber rich , and in that same sentence we say households that earn above 400,000$ per year Like our pos new president. For those that are slow, that’s not even remotely close to being a billionaire and it never will be. That’s “ I own a second vacation home” money and “ it’s mortgaged. Not Bill Gates I own 20 private jets money. Furthermore young generation stress climate change and social injustice and all this other bs, who do you thinks going to solve those issues? The government? Ha.

      @wabi-sabi 😀😁😂 Everyone of the billionaires came from rich families Bezos was given $245,573 to start amazon Elon Musk father owned a emerald mine Zuckerberg parents gave him $100,000 to start facebook. They were able to create there fortunes because they had a safety net of money to land on if there business fails. What I am suggesting isn't selfish or theft I am suggest simply making the system fair. I work full time and can hardly make ends meet meanwhile Bezo is about to own a trillion which is a million million million 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 if he has kids they will have more money than most nations and they would have done nothing giving them unimaginable power think what we could do with fraction of that. education for all, medical care for all

    • wabi-sabi

      @Burn Er I never said you were greedy. I said that's a greedy way of thinking. Giving everyone a fair chance isn't taking what isn't yours. I really hope you don't actually believe that. Everyone having a fair chance means everyone having the same chances to become something better, not stepping over others to get ahead. It means having your own chances, not taking them from others. Have you ever worked so hard for something and finally reaped the benefits of it? Do you think someone else would be deserving to take that from you? Equal opportunity doesn't mean everyone will choose to go the same direction. Two people can win the lottery, one will squander the other will save. People need to start taking responsibility for their own poor choices instead of blaming someone else for making responsible ones. Nobody should be trying to take something that isn't theirs. I don't know if you're greedy or not, but I do know that you have the potential to be a good honest person

    • Burn Er

      @wabi-sabi lol you call me greedy. How can you have anything like a meritocracy when some people are born with billions and some with nothing?. That what you want right everyone to have a fair chance? That's the only way you can get it

    • wabi-sabi

      @Burn Er that's such a greedy, entitled way of thinking. Why should someone's hard earned money not go where they want it to go, and why the heck would anyone deserve to have it other than their descendants. Feeling entitled to someone else's money is twisted.

    • Burn Er

      @Space marine Yes. I don’t like scapegoating people just because they’re successful. Elon Musk is far different from a billionaire who has gotten rich from the financial world. People in the financial world get rich through writing a barely-legal algorithm which allows to front-run other people’s trades which is basically gambling with others’ money. They are crooks who don’t deserve any respect. Elon didn’t steal from anyone and has gotten rich through making products and manufacturing physical goods and making technological innovation. He’s better. Have a great day.

    i read somewhere that that in ancient greece or rome( i don't remember exactly) that the middle class and poor citizens didn't have to pay any tax at all and for the wealthy people paying tax was like a race of who can pay more for the public good. the more you pay it shows the more wealthy you are and it affected their popularity. i think this is how it should be in the modern world too but then looking at most millionaires and billionaires today i think people like bill gates and ratan tata are one of the only people who would be actually genuinely doing this

    The situation in India is adverse. Imagine the prime minister of the country selling a capitalist's product to the whole country saying its free. And few months later its priced the same as others. ( jio- mobile network) The prime minister openly sold the product to the public. They have removed the wealth tax. They removed the limit for donating to election campaigns. They want to privatise everything. The railways, metros, airports everything. And people in India think privatisation is better since the gov is inefficient. But unemployment is at a all time high in India. These people would not be able to afford those services later. In India majority of the people worship the govt. They don't question them. Those who question are called anti national. The propaganda has reached everyone's house. The education system doesn't teach anything. Since the pandemic last year our schools have been shut. majority kids in India go to the govt schools. Their families are daily wagers/ low income households. Online education is impossible for them. They have not studied a word since last march. Can you imagine this. There no facilities for these kids. They have forgotten what they have studied. And no one is talking about it.
