A writer for Bloomberg wrote a rather decent OpEd on Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax.
He went to Twitter to announce his article by describing it as “looting mansions.”
A Democrat Illinois State Senator thought that was a feature, not a bug.
"Warren's wealth tax is an extremely good idea. It is the tax-code equivalent of looting mansions." https://t.co/iIk46WMnAB

People who know the history of the Soviet Union know that the Soviets encouraged the revolution by empowering the poor who joined the Red Army to loot the property of the wealthy, most of who were not nobles but successful business people and educated professionals.
The Communists weaponized envy to an incredible degree.
This was captured in the movie Doctor Zhivago, where the Doctor’s family home is turned into group housing and the poor are stealing everything that isn’t nailed down.
More and more we see the Democrats coming out in favor of policies that come straight out of the Soviet Revolution.
