What happens to one who takes something from someone and uses it in such as manner that violates the source?  In the world of ‘truth tellers’ or  people who are telling others ‘where it’s at’ it is common to take credit for things that are not theirs.  In the world of academic writing its called plagiarism.  In the world of Wisdom its called delusion.
