“The capitalist is a thief who has succeeded through his efforts or those of his ancestors; the common thief is a would-be capitalist, who is simply waiting to become one in fact, to live, without working, on the proceeds of his hauls, that is, on the work of others.”

Errico Malatesta, Il Pensiero, March 16, 1911
