Leaders of a new feudalistic society

Are Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos and their peers the leaders of a new feudalistic society? Here we see his interview with INET President Rob Johnson about how the titans of Silicon Valley use “philanthropy” to control more of our lives.

In 2018, Anand Giridharadas published Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World in which he argues that members of the global elite, though sometimes engaged in philanthropy, use their wealth and influence to preserve systems that concentrate wealth at the top at the expense of societal progress. In this world with a new feudalistic society he presents a devastating portrait of a whole class of people (us), one easier to satirize than to reform.
