Rights (and wrongs),

Today we have a lot of people who don't produce anything, while they demand the right to have what others produce. Such people don't recognize private property rights. Not a favorite term these days. Everyone benefits from private property rights even those who don't own property. American farmers supply grocery stores with fresh food at affordable prices because they can make money from their property. As a result the poor aren't lowered to dumpster diving to find affordable food. In the Soviet Union there was a lot of fertile land for food to grow, yet people starved. That's called Communism.
