I doubt reason can sink in for you as it is clear you don't understand the term redistribution. It is not the voluntary exchange of goods and services but the confiscation of wealth by the gov't to give it to people with less wealth. Dr Sowell rightly shows people of wealth will always go to the nation where they can keep the most wealth. We do need to be concerned with the concentration of wealth but confiscation is a destructive way to do it. We need to completely revamp our tax system because taxing income lets wealth become concentrated in a few hands. A Fair Tax is the way to go.
