    Well, that is quite a stretch. You are suggesting that every person I come in contact each day I have common purpose or interest;

    Yeah, and that last part is why we have Civil Rights.

    Are you aware that "to discriminate" means nothing more than "to recognize a distinction between"?

    Are you saying that each of us doesn't have a right to recognize distinctions? Prohibiting the recognition of something seems absurd to me.

    No. I'm suggesting that everyone you trade voluntarily with has a common purpose or interest. You must know this is true. Otherwise they wouldn't trade with you.

    No. We have civil rights to keep the government from infringing on our natural rights.

    Yeah, the interest is to trade...that is where the association ends.

    What exactly did you mean? I took it to mean that you wanted to take or control the property of your fellow man. If not, what do you consider to be property worship?
