“I think someone like Jamie Dimon genuinely believes that he’s not a slightly handsomer third Koch brother. I think Mark Zuckerberg genuinely believes that he’s not the fourth liberal Koch brother.
I’m sure Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t think he’s a Koch brother.
I’m sure if you called him right now and asked, “Do you think you’re a Koch brother?” He would say, “I think I am meaningfully different from a Koch brother.”
A lot of the people of whom we think of as democratic plutocrats are in some ways a more dangerous version of the Koch brothers. Because they are the Koch brothers in costume. They are the wolves in sheep’s clothing, proverbially.
It helped me understand that we’re not going to be able to count on the woke, liberal, do-gooder, billionaires to save us from billionaire capture.”
