Now you're arguing something different. I'm not interested in the potential for violence or revolution right now. I'm interested in whether or not we're talking about class warfare. If it's not class warfare for you to walk past a beggar on the street without giving him your money, why are you calling it class warfare when the "uber wealthy" don't want to donate their money to benefit the lower classes?
