Redistribution? No. Simply not willing to go along with the concentration of wealth in the hands of only a few individuals. That is not good for the whole of society. It is about the same as feudalism, primogeniture and similar structures. A egalitarian structure in which wealth and political power is broadly rather than narrowly held is much to be preferred. If this chafes the post-modern equivalents of Louise and little Marie (Antoinette), well that's just to bad for them.
Since Reagan the redistribution of wealth has gone from the rest of to the super rich. Say anything about that and you're accused of being a Marxists.
