: And thus these evetns are already 'covered' by laws such as those who would find a man guilty for hitting you. but it isnt for you to 'discuss' with him what he should do with his hands prior to that.

I could, I could ask him to hit me, or ask for a hand job...

: You have agreed with my earlier statement. "since the things he makes them of and with do not belong to him" includes his mind - the engine of all production. He is a slave beholden to all. Even allowing the mind to belong to him result in defacto slavery to the 'all' in that he unable to act without the permisission of 'all' to interact with other matter.

That is what happens anyway in human society, in the form of conscience, habit, "teh neighbours", etc. but since he is also teh all, it doesn't matter, in the end, it means simply he myust live his life through negotiation and co-operation, based on the simple premise that he may not employ the labour of otehrs to gain personal wealth.

: This doesnt change the original proposition.

It does, significantly, since I don't own myself, and since my self is a social product, even my direct sensory inputs are mediated by society, pace David Hume.
