We definitely need to tax the rich to hell and back while capitalism is still a thing, so we don't begrudge everyday people who use this slogan. But in the grand scheme of things, we really gotta be thinking bigger. Individuals shouldn't be able to get Rich in the first place, especially when it's off the backs of the working class both domestic and abroad. Even welfare capitalism/social democracy is bound up with imperialism and exploitation, and so we need to go further.
