Not like anything would change tbh.
This is what haunts me. I fairly recently became part owner of something that was once just a hobby for me and my buddy. I fell off to pursue career interests and he turned it into a multimillion dollar thing, then came back and basically gifted a portion of the company to me, which I begrudgingly accepted (woe is me). I don't really have an active role except providing input when my expertise is needed. I don't receive anything for ownership, though I could.
If anything, I'm more ardent about my commitments to Marxism and honest-to-god communism. But yeah, that means fuck all if my actions don't reflect that. I do have aspirations of taking what I can from the company and putting it towards socialist orgs and shit, which is how I've justified ownership to myself, but that's just talk right now.
Long story short, "alignment" to me means very little if we're just talking about ideology or opinion.
