    If you don't believe you are owed anything by anyone, how could you claim you were the victim of an injustice? What basis do you have for thinking you are owed justice?

    Laws give you recourse for criminal acts. Just being born though entitles you to nothing beyond protection of laws we all live under. If you want steak instead of beans earn it.

    The world does not owe you anything, however people are entitled to access the natural resources that exist in nature to facilitate their sustenance. When governments do things like protect private property, they limit access to those natural resources. In return for the power to do this, people have the right to expect that the government gives them something in return that guarantees if they want to work for their sustenance, that there is a reasonable chance that they can do so. A government that does not do this is merely a thief that robs people of their right to the resources in the environment.

    I would disagree that you are entitled to anything just for being born. Entitlement is earned by you or those who came before you.Our constitution in America entitles us to certain things but we have to be on constant guard that someone doesn't take those hard earned rights

    I disagree with you. Just being born entitles you to be able to use the natural resources of the Earth for your sustenance. A government that interferes with someone's right to do so, without giving anything in exchange is a thief.

    Who or what grants you this? It's a mean world and you have to fight for every bone.

    So you should have to fight the government to survive? What gives the government the right to restrict you from surviving?

    So the world does owe you some kind of entitlement, just not to steak?

    The gov has no right to do so except that might makes right. If you are born into an oppressive go you have to fight to overthrow it.

    World owes you nothing but if you are fortunate enough to be born in a country where people have earned certain rights by the ballot or the sword you inherit those rights.
