Well its good to see you're not a welfare layabout. However I sense that you have a rather severe resentment against anyone who has more than you. Why is this? Did someone take your toys away as a child? Humiliated by the rich boys? Or were you born in a wealthy liberal household which was beset by guilt for its wealth?

Rather than just bitching about how property is theft, I suggest you propose a detailed workable system under which resources are maximally utilized to benefit all, given that all resources originally belong to nobody. If you can't give a sufficient answer then please shut up with your socialist nonsense.
