Because we now have a proletariat. Millions who want what you have because you have it – and they don’t. And who will use any means available to take it from you.

Your quaint notions about property rights being the essential foundation of human rights are like the Latin scrolls of Cicero trampled underfoot by the hordes of the Germanic chieftan Odoacer as Rome slipped forever into that long good night.
