Too many people believe the economy is a fixed size pie, so if one person gets some, then others have lost out, but in reality the economy grows by producing something of value. Those who produce the most value for others should benefit most because they are helping the most people. This is not stealing from others. It is actually giving to others. The nice thing about true, free-market capitalism is that greed, instead of causing stealing from others, causes greedy people to produce more value for others. Even greed benefits others under a capitalist system. The problem is that we don't have a free market capitalist economy. It is more fascists (no, I'm not calling it NAZI) where the mega-corporations and the government work together to steal from and control the majority of citizens. The more people push for government regulations to protect the people, the more the mega-corporations are protected and the more profit they make at the cost of others.

Remember this every time someone whines about how evil colonialists stole wealth from poor countries and how the west got rich because of stolen raw materials...
