Nobody has a right to use the property of another, which is gained by purchasing it.. You can't use my car. You can't use my washing machine. You damn sure can't use my underwear. And you can't even so much as set foot on my real property w/o permission. With the possible exception of some government property, the same is true... just try getting into the Pentagon w/o credentials. So, some random stranger ought to just get random ownership of my property, like the lottery? That's my whole point. I DID pay for it. At fair market value. It's mine. Just as is the computer I'm typing this response on. Those capital gains are worth $0 until realized. Meaningless.
