every successful civilization has depended on rich people for tax; every successful civilization has had at least 2 things: taxes and a good census.
Why are you so eager to make a discriminatory tax based on wealth? How about a tax on a voluntary participation activity, like video games, or soda? Perhaps a higher tax on alcohol? Gee, I wonder why those won't work....

Your wealth envy has slowly overtaken your understanding of human nature.
