"don't call it 'redistribution'"

EconLog | David Henderson | Social Security and Kids

His proposal, if implemented, would reduce the distribution from large to small families. But then, if one's goal is to reduce distribution [I don't call it 'redistribution' because the term 'redistribution' presupposes that someone distributed in the first place] why not take the next logical step: make Social Security non-distributive.
I like that idea. I will also be dropping the "re-" from "distribution."
