  • Should Billionaires Exist?
    by Bradley Thomas on September 21, 2020 at 11:00 am

    A mantra popularized by Bernie Sanders and like-minded progressives declares “billionaires should not exist.” The statement serves as both a declaration of the "immorality" of wealth inequality as well as a justification for steep confiscatory taxes on wealth favored by the likes of Sanders […]

    Gender feminism, the New Left, and Marxism (FLM) are often said to be politically aligned, and, certainly, there is significant overlap. But does a political FLM axis exist?
