Redistribution of wealth is "despotic"

"The Utopian schemes of leveling, and a community of goods, are as visionary and impracticable as those which vest all property in the Crown. [These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional." - Samuel Adams, as recorded in The Life and Public Services of Samuel Adams, William V. Wells, published 1865
