So, how rich do you exactly think you are? Are you earning in excess of Rs 1 lakh, say Rs 3 lakhs per month to be safe? That should make you really really rich, wouldn't it? So when someone says, tax the rich, you really hate it, don't you?
Except, when they say 'tax the rich', they don't mean you. Because you're poor as hell. Not as poor as I am but still poor nevertheless.
Of course, you don't believe me. But allow this gentleman to put this into perspective through a simple chart, so as to keep your breeches from being soiled.

Did you watch that? Well, that puts everything into perspective, doesn't it? I mean, let's be honest, even you knew nobody tries to go to 'space' to satisfy their ego unless they have way too much money to burn.
Well, the video is in the process of going viral. So, of course, Twitter marinating in it.
When we say eat the rich, it’s *these people*, not you with a mortgage, Karen. https://t.co/izLOFSs7pz— Anisa (in quarantine 🇲🇾) (@studioanisa) August 26, 2021
there are probably some people you can show this to, so they better understand that when we say tax the rich we’re not talking about them https://t.co/NESU6pQbKQ— Ayesha A. Siddiqi (@AyeshaASiddiqi) August 25, 2021

It seems almost impossible to acquire that much of a net worth so I fucking hate capitalism https://t.co/EiTEgoqMqE— ™ (@llAboutBenji) August 25, 2021
Look, in all fairness, if you are earning $1 million a year, we should definitely come for you as well. So tell us, how would you like to join us, peasants, in asking to
eat tax the rich?
