Quote from Bertrand de Jouvenel 

"The more one considers the matter,
the clearer it becomes that redistribution
is in effect far less a redistribution of free income
from the richer to the poorer, as we imagined,
than a redistribution of power from the individual to the State."

Quote by:
Bertrand de Jouvenel
(1903-1987) French philosopher, political economist, and futurist
The Ethics of Redistribution [1952] (Indianapolis: Liberty Press, 1990), p. 72.
