It's seems the very phrase "redistribution of wealth" has become something so fraught with negative connotations, not even those who support it want to say it. Last week Paul Krugman was on The Colbert Report, and Colbert kept trying to say he supported redistribution of wealth (which he essentially does), and he refused to say it. Why? Why do left-wing ideologies become something not to be spoken of? "Liberal" is now treated practically as a bad word. I agree with the idea of redistribution of wealth. I believe the rich should be forced to contribute more to society. End of story.
