2 Silicon Valley billionaires want to reinvent the Democratic Party with a new project called ‘WTF’


Business Insider has the article 2 Silicon Valley billionaires want to reinvent the Democratic Party with a new project called ‘WTF’

“We need a modern people’s lobby that empowers all of us to choose our leaders and set our agenda,” said Mark Pincus, the billionaire cofounder of Zynga who is partnering with Hoffman to start WTF. “Imagine voting for a president we’re truly excited about. Imagine a government that promotes capitalism and civil rights.”

Here is the first question they should ask us to vote on. “Should the rules be written so that people like them do not end up being billionaires?”

The fact that a few people become billionaires is the crux of the problem. I don’t have any ideas about how the rules should be rewritten. It just seems obvious to me that if a few people around the world become billionaires while too many people go hungry, then the system is broken.
