Punishment

You cannot punish a poor person for being poor. To do so places the nation on a path to monarchy, tyranny, and revolution.

Similarly, you cannot punish a rich person for being rich. To do so places the nation on a path to a reign of terror.

What you must do is punish all lawbreakers equally, regardless of economic background. That is the only way to ensure the survival of democracy.
