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. Frederic Bastiat:

    But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.

  3. 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.

  4. Brian Deschanel:

    People have become extremely superficial, and feel the need to use and worship a worthless, and fictitious paper out of thin air, which is backed by absolutely nothing, called money (that everyone's been conned into) to be socially respected. People are so lost and franticly divided in their miniscule gender war, chauvinistic and narcissistic fashionista, sports, porn, drug and alcohol consuming, sue happy, sadistic, profiteering sociopathic and psychopathic false ideological (religious and political) activities, that they look but don't see their future right in their face, and yet careless to wake up, acknowledge, and react. I guess Murphy is right, when he says The light at the end of the tunnel, is the train heading for us! This ill fated world population has become a giant worn-out, and sabotaged machine that continues to operate for worse, heading to self-destruction. Thanks to our caring corporate bought and paid- for governments for providing us the indoctrinations and mind controlling schools, press, entertainment, social media, health, politics ( left vs right paradigm, and etc.), religions, police, and justice systems, and not to mention, all ideological (religious and political) high priests, who believe and follow the God named Benjamin, are nothing more than unlawfully paid and legalised criminals in uniform, who are employed to exploit and violate everyone's fundamental rights, sovereignty, well being, and withholding the truth, to prevent mankind’s awakening, and constantly injecting fear into all, while the corporate jezebels rapists, and paedophiliacs that we refer to as politicians, use Hegelian dialectic, spread propagandas, and manufacture false flags to raid and plunder innocents at home and around the world, in the name of security, peace, freedom, health, law, science, and technology. On top of all, these power hungry and greedy psychopaths deploy AI, 5G towers, smart meters, robots, contaminated water supplies, genetically modified junks, chemtrails, poisonous and cancerous treatments, lab generated diseases, euthanasia, mind controlling devices (TVs, phones, tablets, desktops and laptops), pictures and audios with subliminal messages, to infiltrate every individual's body and mind to it's core, redirecting our impulses, and artificially inducing our state of consciousness as mentioned in They Live, in pursuit of destruction of mankind's collectiveness, and driving all livings into extinction, where, the unofficial Doomsday clock is only 15 seconds to midnight! For as long as people are kept asleep, and continue supplying their sweat, voice, time, and efforts to these self entitled, parasitic, and merciless predators known as the ruling class, nothing will change, and the agenda will continue forward, full steam. This is a world-wide madness, and it requires large supplies in high doses of red pill to prevent the annihilation of our beautiful nature and the mother Earth.

  5. Benjamin Franklin:

    [A]s all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever ...
