I don't think @JeffBezos has anything to atone for re: charitable giving. His creative work over two decades has revolutionized access to products at prices that can rarely be beat. The good impact on every household dwarfs any donation he could make.
If what you crave is the cash give-away, be patient. Within one or two generations, all great American fortunes are dispersed to "public good" anyway. They are either donated, taxed, or squandered away 100% within a few decades of the founder's death if not sooner.
And in the meantime, by holding the capital and investing it, the initial "nest egg" benefits from compounding returns. That's why the American system of wealth creation and dispersion is the best in the world. Doesn't depend on central planning or even on altruistic founders.
Sen. Warren's default position seems to be that businesspeople are born bad, successful businesses must have cheated, and purifying regulation is the only hope for their souls. Her religion is obviously ridiculous if you swap out "businesspeople" for "writers."
"The wealth amassed by the top 1% of writers dwarfs that of the rest. Authors like Rowling, Patterson, Steele, King live in mansions while most others trying to play the game fairly suffer day in day out not knowing how to pay the bills."
"Rowling, Patterson, Steele, King and their ilk have the nerve to pay their staff a mere fraction of what they pay themselves. They spin a web of contracts with huge companies that perpetuate their dominance. It is unjust and it's been going on too long."
