Just Doing What Comes Naturally
Even the bluest of mainstream, socialist media express dismay over Jon Corzine’s misconduct. They shouldn’t be surprised by it.
After all, Corzine, a huge financial contributor to the Democrat/Socialist Party when he was co-head of Goldman Sachs, became a Democrat/Socialist Senator from New Jersey, then that state’s governor. In all those roles, Corzine displayed the liberal-progressive-socialist presumption that money other people earn is, of right, property of the socialist state to be redistributed as liberal-progressive-socialists see fit.
It’s hardly a big step from there to the presumption of entitlement to convert $1.2 billion of clients’ money to his firm’s use.
