Property

It is wrong to say that God made rich and poor; He made only male and female; and He gave them the earth for their inheritance…. The earth, in its natural uncultivated state was, and ever would have continued to be, the common property of the human race.

— Thomas Paine, Agrarian Justice

I think we are property. I should say we belong to something. That once upon a time, this earth was No-Man’s land, that other worlds explored and colonized here, and fought among themselves for possession, but that now it’s owned by something. That something owns this earth – all others warned off.

— Charles Fort

Property is theft.

— P. Proudhon
