Billionaire Bill Koch: I plan to put people in jail
- A man who is personally worth a thousand thousand thousand dollars, who upon further reading is revealed as an oil/energy company executive, literally wants to subject people to years and years of ass rape and restraint chairs for having the gall to sell him a wine which may or may not be fully authenticated, thus irreparably marring his 15,000 bottle collection and humiliating him in front of his similarly plutocratic friends. This is the point where all the capitalist apologists squirm out the woodowork; "well vonCube", they say, "does not a wealthy man deserve fair compensation for his money, the same as someone less well off?" But there's a deeper issue at play here; at what point in one's life does the disconnect between their wealth and their purchases become so yawning that one uses wealth as an extension of their ego, without the slightest thought or restraint? This is a man who probably uses the phrase "the little people" in casual conversation.
