3. They're taking it, because their men with guns are handing it over.

Twenty-year-old men with guns run the world. The wealthy couldn't do shit without them.

5. It has always been thus

Always. All that has changed are the methods used to achieve their goals.

In fact, they're just about to start nailing the lid on the coffin of the rest of us.

7. It's past time for an "austerity" program for the uber-wealthy.

We need to tax them out of existence.

For every uber-wealthy person who got there by hard work and talent, there's a dozen who got there by inheritance, corruption, thievery, environmental destruction, raiding pension funds, abusing their workers, and so on.

Nobody should be so wealthy that they can buy government, or so poor that they can't have secure comfortable housing, good food, good schools, and appropriate medical care.

Ordinary wealth is a fine thing, the big house, nice car, the vacation cottage, traveling the world.

It starts to go wrong when money starts to warp the political system in favor of the very wealthy and to the detriment of everyone else.
