Kantian Ethics suggest that morality is universal and every person is aware of what is right and what is wrong.
Judeo-Christian Ethics (Thou shalt not steal.) suggest that property does have an owner and to violate the rights of that owner is morally reprehensible.
Kantian Ethics offers an exercise. If every single person took the same action that I take would society function? If the answer is yes. It is moral. If the answer is no. It is immoral.
If every single human imposed a tax on every other single human being it wouldn't function properly. Taxation allows elected officials to exercise a different moral code. Which Kant suggests is impossible.
I hope I understood your question.
"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
