Questions for Keynesians

1) If I take your property in exchange for scraps of paper backed only by the barrel of a gun, is that "thievery"?
2) If I remove the essential consumables from the Consumer Price Index, does that "reduce inflation"?

The cost of the eggs I buy has increased 50% in the last 14 months. The cost of the yogurt I buy has increased 30% in the last two months.
