“I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Mark Zuckerberg making decisions over my life,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said. “I don’t know about you, but the Waltons have already been making decisions over our lives and what we got was nothing.”

“We need to build a mass movement in America have centered on working-class, poor, middle class,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “One that is actively anti-racist, that is rooted in principles of universality. Everybody has a right to health care. Everybody has a right to an education. One that is rooted in principles of cooperation, that not only racism but misogyny, anti-queer discrimination, we have to have those principles drive us forward because the future is in a public system, a publicly owned system.”

“Because we need to take power over our lives again,” Ocasio-Cortez emphasized as part of her call for greater government management of American society.

“We need a United States that really, truly, authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working in all people in the United States of America,” she said. “It is multi-racial, multi-centered, multi-gendered, multi-generational, and multi-geographic. We have to come together, not ignoring our differences, but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice, understanding that we evolved in a context that involved slavery, Jim Crow, mass incarceration, and the reality we have today.”
