Come on that's an excessively broad assertion even for you:)

Not all property is stolen. If you said all land is stolen you'd be closer but even then it's hardly a universal.

If no one has any incentive to undertake a project then it shouldn't be done, and certainly a project no one had any secular incentive to accomplish does not justify theft to do it.

Public taxing bodies always have incentive to tax and spend. It can either benefit no one else, or one party, like the land owner where the road or rail will go through, but it costs everyone and is a transfer of wealth to the parasitic class and their cronies.

Monopolies cannot do anything efficiently because the incentive of monopolies is to lower supply and drive up prices. Governments are the worst sort of monopoly since they can only claim more resources if they do a poor job or fail completely, and governments create all other monopolies.
