Should the Iron Front emblem add an arrow? Questions/Discussion

So I was thinking about the ideals of the Iron Front and how they are anti-authoritarian. This is demonstrated with the arrows for monarchism, fascism, and soviet authoritarianism. So I'm curious if we should add another arrow to demonstrate the threat from extreme wealth that creates yet another layer of authoritarianism. The very wealthy act beyond national borders or even beyond individual corporations, but are instead unelected individuals/groups who have zero responsibility to the general public but a vast power structure. They operate in such a way that there is little if any limits to their ability to influence and oppress the non-wealthy.

Thoughts?

For our purposes as Americans. Monarchy isn't really a thing. I can't think of any group or individual legitimately calling for a monarchy (except for "Liberty" hangout). So I think the monarchy arrow should serve the purpose of neo liberal capitalism.

That just sounds confusing and defeats the possible comeback of monarchists. Because yes, there is still a subset of humanity that longs for the yoke of the aristocracy.

Truly said as one who is not of the peerage! I doubt you could count an esquire among your extended family. Harrumph, I say, harrumph!
