Can conservatives and Democratic Socialists agree that at the very least, we need to tax university endowments at ruinous rates? Sounds like a wealth tax to me, but probably easier to pin down than the total assets of private individuals.

Better yet: abolish universities altogether!

I thought DSA was all about the European model where you can be in graduate school for most of your adult life. I'm okay with that, as long as the university endowments are paying for it.

(79% of American students take additional time when earning their bachelors or masters degree)

I’m down with a wealth tax on endowments. The disparity between most American universities (whose endowments are not remarkable compared to those in places like Europe, Saudi Arabia, or Singapore) and the wealthiest schools is a mirror of the inequity in our society at large.

Yeah the idea that dying of preventable illness or rationing insulin or going back to community college so you can get an AA in IT and work 50 hours a week for some 27 year old--the idea that all of this as status quo is *not* garbage is really going to resonate with the underclass electorate.

For those of you who haven't listened to the actual interview, and don't read Ocasio Cortez fanzines like the Daily Caller or Federalist:
Quote:
Q: You ran a campaign that highlighted issues that are characterized as fringe, but which have a plurality of support not just among Democrats but among Republican voters as well. So why do you think it's taken so long to get candidates who are pushing issues like Medicare for all, a green new deal, $15 minimum wage etc to the foreground?

A: (tells sleepy, typical politician story about meeting with constituents, including Trump voters, and hearing their fears). So when someone’s talking about ‘our core,’ it's like, ‘oh, this is radical,’ but it isn’t radical. This is what we’ve always been. It's just now we've moved so far away from what's made us powerful and equitable and just and productive. And all of these things sound radical compared to where we are, but where we are is not a good thing. And this idea of like, ten percent better than garbage, it shouldn’t be what we settle for. It feels like moderate is not a stance, it's just an attitude towards life. Like (mimics a shrug). We’ve become so cynical, that we view ‘meh,’ or ‘eh’—we view cynicism as an intellectually superior attitude, and we view ambition as youthful naivete when we think about the greatest things we have ever accomplished as a society have been ambitious acts of visions. And the ‘meh’ is like worshipped now for what? Like, for what?

Saying we should reject efforts that only make us 10% better than garbage portrays a clear stance on where we are.

Where we is probably the best state that any large nation has ever been in terms of equity and opportunity. Not perfect, but likely the best.

Lmao yes *please* run on the platform of "we're pretty good!" That is definitely an accurate reading of the current political climate.

This political moment is one in which the majority of people feel like they're being scammed (because they are, but that's another point). The question is not "Are you really being scammed?" but "Who's scamming you--immigrants or billionaires?" This is true but it doesn't matter at all if it's objectively true because that's not how politics works. Moving away from a myth of meritocracy is by far the smartest tactic for any Democrat, regardless of how her bad faith interlocutors at Fox etc want to paint it.
