: Personally I have no trouble taking moral positions. I'm glad to see that you both admit to similar tendencies. In fact, nine-tenths of your arguements are embedded in moral defenses of property and freedom from coercion.

90%, youve been analysing again!

: To regard welfare as a form of "exploitation" by those dependent on others takes theories of possessive individualism to its limits. What motivates behavior when it comes to caring for an infant? Do you take out a calculator and balance the costs of food and shelter against potential future return before responding to an infant's need?

Yes, in your mind thats exactly what you do - but the 'costs' and benefits arent necissarily financial. most people are caring, i think.
