: That owuld be true in a desert where water was scarce, denying people access to vitalk water suuplies is a form of theft- when people die in preventable famines, property is theft.

and when they arent dying then 'denying' them is not because they can get it elsewhere? it eitehr is or it isnt.

: : Youve spent 10 years developing a remarkable life enhancing device (you didnt find it under a rock, you used yer head). Well mate ive got news for you, i dont care what effort it took its mine as much as yours, how dare you deny me my 'right' to share in this property I could never even figure out myself. Youve stolen my opportunity to use something that wouldnt have existed were it not for you, same goes for everything that exists which a person makes!

: If I discovered a cure for cancer, by what right could I withold its use to make a personal profit for myself- recognition and respct for creativity is due, but not the right to extort.

heres the crux of the thing, the inventor or organisor of some product is bound over to supply to anyone who says "yeah ill have that" and be gamned to hell if they dare have an opinion about how *their* minds work is to be used, whcih couldnt exist without them.
