I don't see him proposing any methods that might upset your worldview.

He is analysing history and pointing out that huge concentrations of
wealth have always been disrupted and redistributed by one method or
another and usually by violent means.

This suggests that our present increasing concentration of wealth (and
corresponding decreasing living standards of most of the population)
is about to be disrupted and it would be helpful to consider possible
ways of reducing the imminent violent chaos.
