Rutger Bregman on his viral tax speech in Davos

"We've got to talk about taxes. All the rest is BS in my opinion." He confronted the Davos elite in a viral speech... and wasn't invited back to the prestigious conference. Historian Rutger Bregman tells Brut what led him to speak up.

    He talk rubbish we tried higher taxes in the 1970s it was a economical disaster. And he has to know as he is Dutch where they tried it. Just a Marxist for the middle classes.

    Thank you for reposting this. The answer to all our problems is so simple, tax the filthy rich. Billionaires are writing off Jets at the moment, we are paying for those Jets. Unfortunately greed rules the world, even at the poorest levels of society, greed rules the masses.
