    Exclamation Do You Have The Right To Other People's Property?

    A simple question. Do you have the right to other people's property and to enforce the taking of it through the use of the government?

    For myself, I will say no because it is your property and you can do with it as you see fit as long as it doesn't infringe the rights of others or harm them. I will state that property includes money, real property, and personal property.

    Sort of, when it is taxed, it is no longer that person's property. I wouldn't say that we have a direct right to people's property, but we do have a right to have a say in government programs and the taxation necessary to support it.

    I'll take that as a yes then. Do you think that if the government wasn't involved that it would be alright for someone to come along and take your property without your consent and it be okay?

    I'm curious. What do you mean by someone taking another person's property though the use of government? How could that happen?

    It depends on the purpose.

    You want the government to seize a portion or all of a person's property. It's exactly what it says.

    Still you're being a vague, so that means that you have nothing to really add. Thank you for your time.

    Ok, I guess a hypothetical would be, if there was a flood and a bunch of people were starving and I had more food than I could eat.
