Funny, because that is exactly how I see the PD exploiters: as scavengers and vultures who do not create or produce anything, they only use what others already produced to earn themselves money.
Unlike our hypothetical Fred Malory, who ALSO did not create or produce anything, and only uses what others already produced to earn himself money, but happens to have a minuscule amount of genetic material from Sir Thomas Malory.
And, of course, he's not alone. If we assume a generation of 20 years, and at least two children per descendant per generation, and a period of 560 years for ease of mathematics, that gives us approximately 228 descendants, or 268 MILLION people who would all profit, having .000003% Malory genes each.
