    If you can obtain those things on your own accord or on the agreement of others, than yeah, you have a right to them.
    No you just have the right to them. Regardless of labour or anything else... Hence the name "human rights"

    And again, human rights laws should be present in a capitalist market too... They should be internationally enforced in this day and age...

    Would I be right in saying that you believe you have a right to force people to provide you things such as clothing, shelter, water, food, healthcare, education, etc?

    If I don't accept your terms and you make me comply to them that is force, sorry. If I don't desire to provide people those things you listed and you impose on me to make me do so that is force.

    No. You took/take from society. You owe it. Make the false libertarian argument all you want it don't make it true.

    We seem to be at that now? What basic human rights do we not have access to? How many people are starving?

    Why do I owe society anything? Because I benefited from it? Do I owe something to every person that I ever benefited from in one way or another? If so, why?

    Better yet, do they owe something to you and when do they pay up?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No you owe society as a whole.
    Do you use roads?
    Are their pipes to your house to hook up to for gas? Did you pay to have the electrical lines ran? Can you call the cops or fire department if necessary?

    I thought as much.

    Loads. Just not to death. You can starve without dying.

    You guys must have never been to a city in your life, or scene a homeless person...

    What does starving mean again?
    still hung up on starving-a claim you never proved.

    and if you are ambitious and work hard you can get decent education in just about any public school in the USA
