George Lucas is your typical hypocrite “progressive”
George Lucas may have lost his soul regarding the Star Wars series, but he’s crazy like a fox when it comes to his billions:
[...] That Lucas struck a deal in 2012 may be no accident either, advisers say. Long-term capital gains tax from the sale of assets held more than one year are taxed at a rate of 15% for investors in the 25% income tax bracket or above (Lucas’s level), and zero for investors in the 10% or 15% bracket.

Hypocrites. All of them.
