I thought there was a hint or two of "Lock your mansions, the masses could potentially mobilize if you guys aren't prudent" kind of thing?

No, it's much more depressing than that. It's an economics book, not a politics book and its argument is basically "the only time the poor and middle class claw back any money from the rich is during times of great social upheaval and war."

It basically argues that if you aren't busy getting rich, you're getting poor.
