This is a question that has crossed my mind from time to time. Why do millionaires and billionaires, who often made their money in the free market, reject the very system that produced their wealth? Why do the CEOs of Google, Ford, Starbucks, and others support leftist ideas?
Like the Robber Barons of over a century ago, once they got to the top, they want to secure their economic, social, and political position of power.
The Epoch Times columnist, Jean Chen, gives a history and explains this topic in depth in her article, “A Mom’s Research: Why Are Many Elites Leftists?” In print, it nearly covers two newsprint pages but is worth the read.
