How to use plunder in a sentence?

  1. Frederic Bastiat:

    When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.

  2. Vladimir Putin:

    The liberal idea presupposes that nothing needs to be done. The migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants must be protected. What rights are these? Every crime must have its punishment, so, the liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population.

  3. Horace:

    The years as they pass plunder us of one thing after another.

  4. Tacitus:

    To plunder, to slaughter, to steal, these things they misname empire; and where they make a wilderness, they call it peace.

  5. Friedrich August von Hayek:

    With the exception only of the period of the gold standard, practically all governments of history have used their exclusive power to issue money to defraud and plunder the people.
