What is by nature the common birthright of all,
we have made the exclusive property of individuals;
what is by natural law the common fund,
from which common wants should be met,
we give to a few that they may lord it over their fellows.
And so some are gorged while some go hungry,
and more is wasted than would suffice to keep all in luxury.
