    No. In theory you just stole from every person that possess that same currency.

    Don't forget that you are also stealing from everyone you give the currency too in order to "buy" things.

    Yeah, it's unethical.

    I'm not a huge fan of money in any form but precious metals with a very stable value...
    I see the problem with minting false coins with lead etc, but printing that paper money...
    The banks just make up capital that isn't there, and that's what lets this parasitic abomination of a society survive.
    With parasitic abominations, I mean the service economies that aren't producing anything much.

    I'm actually all for counterfeiting money. If someone does it on a large enough scale, it will probably fuck everything up.
    Hopefully, some day, stuff will be less insane. To you, i'm probably the one that sounds insane
    Give it some thought.

    No, it's not ethical. You think you get it for free? Wrong. One way or another, you will still "pay" for it like the people who work for their money (time, effort, health, etc. things you sacrifice to get money).

    Couldn't be any less ethical than the ones in power that print money at their disposal.

    That was what I was trying to relay. Thanks for saying it in comprehensible words without fluff

    Counterfeiting is a thriving private enterprise. Free-market baby. Can't have big government telling us what we can and can't do with paper....
