“The tough part about this, about like, is capitalism redeemable? For me, when I think about what those definitions are, capitalism isn’t, to me, it’s an ideology of capital. The most important thing is the concentration of capital,” claimed Cortez.
“It means that we seek and prioritize profit […] above all else. We seek it at any human and environmental cost. That is what that means. To me, that ideology is not sustainable and cannot be redeemed,” she added.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended her campaign’s extensive use of car services throughout the 2018 midterm elections over the weekend; bizarrely stating that she’s just “living in the world.”
“I also fly & use A/C. Living in the world as it is isn’t an argument against working towards a better future.
