Tuition Fees & Pensions; thefts from other generations?

A colleague and I were discussing tuition fees and a grauate tax, and he said 

A graduate tax (assuming not just for future grads) would at least be one less theft from the next generation

 

It got me thinking. If  tuition fees/graduate tax on future graduates is theft from the next generation…

… presumably it is the last generation who stole my pension?

 

In my view, of course, neither are a theft; both are a reflection on changing pattern in longevity, employment, and what we regard as appropriate provision by the state.
