The world's billionaires now hold a combined $14.2 trillion in assets.

That exceeds the GDP of every country in the world except the US and China.

And we’re supposed to believe the ultra-wealthy can’t afford a wealth tax?

@rbreich you don’t get it. The billionaires are a country.

@rbreich Why aren't you running for president?

@rbreich That's never going to happen while the world is run by and for those same billionaires. Have you ever noticed how oligarchy transcends political, national and religious boundaries with apparent ease? That makes it obvious who actually governs the world, and by the results, it's also obvious who the world is run for.

The only reason to accumulate such wealth is exactly that: to have power over everyone underneath it.

There is no way they - or their grandchildren - can consume all that.

Higher taxes is actually a kind way to address this matter.

In 1792 the ultrawealthy in French also could NOT afford a wealth tax…

@rbreich the crazy thing is if you took all of their money, doubled it, and you still wouldn't have enough to pay off America's public debt.

What annoys me most about them is the fact they make so much money off the backs off those they consider lesser mortals ... and use the same infrastructure that they don't contribute to ...

@rbreich and we could « invade » them and reclaim that wealth for basically zero cost plus casualties measured in a day’s road deaths for the US.

The time is closing on taxing them.

Soon the time will come to take it from them.

@rbreich I really hate looking at ticks. It really cost me, psychically, to find that image. Sorry I can't fix it, but I think y'all have the idea

There's not really very many of those ticks, but they're sucking the blood out of our Body Politick

So many needed resources, hoarded for what?

@rbreich The craziest thing is that they will still be wealthy. We are chattel and cattle to them.

Property is power.
The billionaires are the Medieval feudal lords, just rebranded.

When it comes to the rich...

They will never have enough money. Their greed can never be satisfied.
