Six thoughts from William Koch, on family, money and politics. From an interview with The Associated Press:
—On his brother Charles: "He likes to do things his own way. He likes to be the boss, as most older brothers do. ... He does like control."
—On his siblings overall: "I once used to say that my brother David collected girlfriends till he got married, then my brother Charles collects money and my brother Fred collects houses and then I collect everything I can."
—On Charles' and David's involvement in politics: "I wonder a little bit about the high profile they've taken but admire them for their passionate beliefs and their putting their money where their mouths are."
—On Charles' political views: "He's a born-again libertarian or a born-again conservative and sometimes born-agains take positions that are a bit extreme."
—On misconceptions about his family: "We're all branded as right-wing extremists or right-wing conservatives and I know my brother David and particularly I don't care if two guys want to get married or two women want to get married. So what? And so I don't think we have what you'd call the Bible-belt attitudes that are thrown onto conservatives. ... Some of my brothers are socially liberal and economically conservative."
—On life: "I've really enjoyed the ride I've had since I left Koch Industries. ... What money does is allow you to act out a lot of your eccentricities. ... I've put a lot of it to good use and I've had a lot of fun with the rest."
