renter euthanasia

That sounds like something the 1% may have in mind. Keynes talked about  euthanasia of the rentier. He expected it to happen naturally, but he was wrong.

The main problem for Keynes appears to be a political practicality, after all. Are there books on how to upset the 1%? Or relaxing them without upsetting?

Gene Sharp's From Dictatorship to Democracy is by far the best I have found. It is an how-to, not an academic study (though based on Sharp's studies), and is as far as I cna see as applicable to economic dictatorship as to political dictatorship.
