We all 'steal' property when we use something then? and we steal it from however many generations follow us!

finally, test this one.

Youve spent 10 years developing a remarkable life enhancing device (you didnt find it under a rock, you used yer head). Well mate ive got news for you, i dont care what effort it took its mine as much as yours, how dare you deny me my 'right' to share in this property I could never even figure out myself. Youve stolen my opportunity to use something that wouldnt have existed were it not for you, same goes for everything that exists which a person makes!
