    I shall explain..you wish to use government and its power to force one person, to treat another with respect and dignity , fairly, and if they don't you will use government power on them. But what you fail to realize is ,in having liberty people don't have to treat other people that way, unless a persons rights have been violated ,the government has no authority to act.

    How is a person's right NOT being violated because someone refuses services due to the color of his skin or his heritage?

    Because you have no exercisable Rights on my property..... the right of commerce is an exercisable right.

    To what "right/s" are you refering to? To not be discriminated against? Such a right does not exist.

    So, free market really is selective market based on the property owners discretion. Basically, using your premise, we can never have a truly free market because people who don't own property are at the will of property owners. Now that is liberty at its best

    There is no such right. It is however a priviledge.

    Make sure you tell all your minority friends about what you think about how you have a "right" to discriminate, how freedom from discrimination means "violating the body and property of your fellow man", okay? Make sure you tell all of them that, y'hear?
