Those that give away 99% of their wealth can’t possibly be “conservative”

A conservative will not spend a dime of their money for the benefit of humanity or some other good cause

Mark & Priscilla with Max

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan have just had a baby – a girl they have named Max. And to celebrate the occasion of Max’s birth, the couple has announced that they are giving away 99% of their wealth – about $44.3 billion of their Facebook holdings. They will keep a measly $449 million worth of shares in the company he founded.

In a letter to their new child Max, both parents said the funds will go to the “Chan Zuckerberg Initiative” which will “join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation.”

Now that is some moxie!

Mark Zuckerberg & Priscilla ChanWhen you do something like that – pledge away almost all you’re worth in money while you’re still around – you can’t possibly be a selfishly filthy-rich conservative.

You’ve got to be a rational, altruistic, practical, and down-to-earth human being who knows you can’t take anything with you when you die – so you might as well put it all to work for the good of others while you’re still around!
