Why You Can't Have Free Things

This is pretty good overall, although I would frame the reason we should not take from the rich differently.

The host says that if you took all of Mark Cuban's money and passed it out each person would only get $9.40, but what if a person is so rich that taking all his money results in everyone getting $10,000---or taking from a group so that it would amount to $10,000 distributed to each person, is it then justified?

The takings problem should be framed in terms that coercion is always evil and always bad for society because fundamentally that is the problem
