Watch a historian nail the super-rich: 'enough of your charity bullshit, let's talk taxes'

The billionaires' annual gathering at Davos was shaken up by a stinging takedown on taxes by a Dutch historian. And for many, it was a welcome and long overdue moment.

There was a lot of talk about tax at Davos. And there was certain hostility directed at new US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

$10,000 a year is too much. Tax it all. Tax the poor, they're the ones using social programs anyway. This stuff is so completely subjective. No one has the right to tell me how much money is too much for me. Or my neighbor. It's easy to use this stuff to stir up a majority and then have the entire economy eat itself. Or sow seeds of revolution so eventually, only party or faction members get access to an entire nation's wealth opportunities.

Class warfare is a scam. America is still better at resisting it. Robin Hood can still be destroyed.
