Who am I labeling? If it's "labeling" to call someone who ideologically lifts from Marxism and hangs out with them in their conferences, then it is with someone who does the same with the Nazis.
I've had liberals call me a liar when I say people will just hide their money.
How many there are is meaningless. It's the amount of assets that so few control. Unsustainable. Period. In fact, it is madness. We protect ourselves from the insanity of it all by pretending to have everything well labeled and under our rational control (ergo your desperate grasp onto the labels of "Marxist" and "liberal"), when in fact the absurdity of the situation makes a mockery of our pretense to rational thought. The economy of the world is teetering on the edge while the mega rich hide more than twice the resources of the GDP of the United States. But we should be worried about the Marxists.
