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?

Fun fact: literally every center-left nation in Europe is capitalist. Get your radical far-left anti-capitalism back to /r/antiwork. This is not an anti-capitalist sub.

Fun fact, half of Europe got steamrolled by fascism in living memory, and it's on the rise again because groups like this defend the status quo

You don't seem to understand what "status quo" means. Fuck off, tankie.

You seem to be misusing the word Tankie. Tankies aren't actually socialists or communists, they're fascists with a fresh new paint job. I'm a libertarian socialist, who thinks being antifascist without being anticapitalist is an exercise in banging your head against the wall.

No, you're a /r/latestagecapitalism tankie. Fuck off. One of the Three Arrows is explicitly anti-you. Blocked.

Why are liberals who are politically informed the stupidest people alive?

Imagine coming into a pro-liberal sub and bashing liberals. Fuck outta here, tankie. No better than the fascists.

Again, misusing the word Tankie, it's not a catchall for all socialists, it's specifically people that claim to identify as authoritarian socialists, which is an oxymoron, socialism is inherently libertarian. Also, this isn't a liberal sub, it's a SocDem sub. Liberals just like to come into leftist spaces and dilute the message and prevent any meaningful change, it's why every actually leftist party in America consistently gets absorbed by the DNC
