Throughout history authoritarians have stated that certain classes of people should not exist, and they acted on their assertion one way or another.

    We could be like Zimbabwe where 100 trillion dollar notes were held by people wearing flip flops and tattered clothing couldn't buy gum with it. If the money was not stolen but earned how much any individual is worth is irrelevant to any other individuals desire to succeed and earn substantial income.

    I completely agree, Billionaires should not exist! The dollar should never have been debased enough to achieve that in one lifetime. Rockefeller was "only" worth something around 200 million in his day, when dollars were real dollars.

    Billionaires to socialist/communists are nothing more than ripe fruit to be picked and consumed with no regard as to how they were grown in the first place.

    And they make them scapegoats. What Sanders is doing is evil. In 2016 he wrote an article for NYT that supported Trump, although he quickly added not for the mean-spirited motivations he ascribes to Trump.

    If the deplorables of the world, those who want to find scapegoats for their problems and punish them, ever figure out they're the same and work together, the world will be in trouble.

      Sanders IS evil, through and through. He takes from the politically disadvantaged using whatever "arguments" he can raise. Billionaires are an easy target since they have a lot of loot to get, and they are a member of a small group.

    Too bad Bernie won't be around when space industrialization creates the first trillionaire, because then I think his head would really physically explode.

    Considering my BFF is renting one bedroom apartments to people in California for $3200 a month, I can understand someone being a billionaire. Doesn't bother me.

      Sounds very attractive until one considers what sort of crap (figurative and literal) one must put up with to do business in that state. Your BFF is probably not earning enough! :-)
