Gallows and Guillotine

Taxing the wealthy is a good solution to public shortfalls brought on by systematic fraud in government and business, but as a deterrent to sociopathic, criminal behavior on the part of the privileged, it falls far short. When we view greed and the obscenity of vast wealth as a crime against humanity, the cure requires something much stronger than token taxation and phony philanthropy.

The gallows and the guillotine come to mind.
