In this quote, Lucy Parsons is warning against being misled into thinking the wealthy will tolerate policies being voted in that redistribute their wealth or income. Her point is that the rich hold significant economic and political power, and they are unlikely to stand by while the general public votes for measures that substantially diminish the vast fortunes and assets accumulated by the wealthy.

Parsons suggests that those with large amounts of wealth will use their influence and resources to oppose any major attempts to vote for high taxes or other policies that directly threaten their financial interests.

So in essence, she is cautioning not to be naive about how far the voting population can democratically go in voting for redistributive measures, given the countervailing power and influence that will be exerted by those whose wealth is at stake.
