"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."
The Ethics of Redistribution  (Indianapolis: Liberty Press, 1990), p. 72.
