Keep ur cool Eve. Wealthy South American families- pardon me, wealthy families don't "flee." They move. Their choice. Ur duty to respect it, which I do, though I disagree with Severin.
You may want to consider, however that he owed 34.4% of the company he co-founded. In other words, he lost 30% of the stake on his own company, with the help of the same legal system which allows him to renounce his US citizenship. You may think he is a "creep", but he has a legal right - and no OBLIGATION to do otherwise.
PS: do yourself a favor and wipe off that image of the Severins as poor immigrants fleeing deathsquads

1. He got admitted on his merit, and he paid his tuition.
2. So what? You know who you know based on circumstance- actually u have a point- but it works against u. U see, he met those people by his being here which is something he earned... Have you any idea how difficult it is for anyone to immigrate into this country?
3. He worked for it and paid his dues. He also, apparently got taken for a lot of money in the process.
4. He sued for a lot more. Get informed. It won't hurt u.
5. Duh! Do u mean his 4% will increase? Or his personal worth? Because his "worth" right now is base on estimated valuation of FB (he does not have Billions of cash under his mattress). In any case, you are right in stating the obvious: his worth will grow- that was the idea behind going into business in the first place (and the foundation of Capitalism)
Moral duty, you say? U may be right, but counties nor commerce is ruled by morals. They are ruled by laws. Severin is doing what he believes he has to do- or wants to do- for whatever reason he has. It is legal for him to do so. So be it, and from your stand point, good riddance!
Funny how the author, as an Immigrant from Africa fails to understand that "America" is more than the USA. It is a Continent. The Continent of Severin's birth. It is also an idea. An idea that people can achieve what they may dream, if given the chance to persue it. While I personally do not agree with Severin's choice, it would be fair to remember that, prior to his split with Zuckeberg, Severin's stake in the company was much bigger than the 4% those US courts RESTITUTED to him.
In other words, some could say that the US- represented by those courts that ruled against him (he lost much more than $600 stake in Facebook) already took more than their pound o flesh from the man.
Yes, in order for the US to continue offering safety and opportunity for people within their borders and beyond, Citizens must perform their civic duties and be loyal tax paying members of Society. So Severin has left the building? So be it it is his right to do so, and every believer of the American Dream's obligation to defend his right to do so.
PS: I am an American immigrant who believes and loves America.
