I dispute that the money is yours in the first place.

There are three quotes that I find very useful:

  1. Property is freedom. Capitalist view - Having property means you can support yourself.
  2. Property is theft. Communist view - owning anything means you are stealing from everyone - as in a natural state nothing is owned by anyone.
  3. Property is impossible. Scientific view: 'Property' is just a term applied to objects that you do not wish anyone else to take away from you. It doesn't have an intinsic meaning.
