    Trading with someone is a type of association. Yes. It should be voluntary, not coerced by government. Yes. I'm glad you see it my way now. Thanks.

    I understand. Facing facts can be painful, especially when one supports violating the body or property of one's fellow man. Nasty business indeed. Best left to the government thugs.

    Property worship is idolatry. You need to found your ethics in something meaningful.

    No one has "the right to discriminate".. Discrimination is inherently anti-free

    No, but having property does give you a license to do with that property as you please allowing that it doesn't infringe on someone else's right.
