Multi-millionaire Hollywood actor John Cusack has landed a top spot in a socialism conference that will be held in Chicago this year, per The Daily Caller.
Cusack is worth roughly $40 million.

The wealthy actor — who has amassed a fortune greater than the entire annual gross domestic product of Tuvalu by appearing in a throng of films including “High Fidelity,” “Better Off Dead” and “Hot Tub Time Machine” — will discuss “the questions of our time.”
Other Socialism 2017 conference events will include “Abortion Without Apology,” “No Ban, No Wall: The Fight Against Deportations” and “Assata Taught Me: The Black Panther Party and Popular Mobilization in the Trump Era.”
The conference will be held in Chicago’s swanky Hyatt Regency McCormick Place.
Cusack’s speech is titled, “Things That Can And Cannot Be Said.”
Organizers apparently suggest that a more formal socialist movement needs to be formed in the United States.
“The same political system that spawned Trump cannot be relied on to stop his attacks — instead we must look to the millions of people who will continue to resist,” the burnished conference promotional materials explain.

The hotel choice is ironically fancy for a socialism conference.
The Hyatt Regency is a sumptuous capitalist paradise which provides guests with “37′ HDTVs and plush Hyatt Grand Beds” in every room, a sauna, a fitness concierge, “sophisticated, international cuisine” and, of course, a coffee shop brewing expensive java from Starbucks (a corporation valued at $84.4 billion).
The Socialism Conference website makes a point to inform attendees that the Hyatt Regency doesn’t allow smoking “but there is a patio area near the bar.”
