I suggest that we are thieves in a way. If I take anything I do not need for my own immediate use, and keep it, I thieve it from someone else. . . . If everybody would just take enough for himself and nothing more, there would be no pauperism in this world, there would be no man dying of starvation in this world. As long as we have this inequality, we are thieving.
