Speaking at the Human Rights: MLK Now 2020 in Harlem's Riverside Church on Monday, New York City Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke about her belief that billionaires must give up their power in the name of ethics, Breitbart reports.
"If Jeff Bezos wants to be a good person, you turn Amazon into a worker cooperative," she said.
"You know, like what do I do with all this money that I have created with this unjust system?"
"It means that you own oil supplies. It means that you control textiles. It means that you have a massive labor force under your control," she continued.
"And to be ethical, if you're a billionaire today, the thing that you need to do is give up control and power. So I don't want your money as much as we want your power. The people. Not me."
Despite her belief that the current Democratic Party is not progressive enough, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that there are some members who have joined her movement to push the party left along with Sanders.
