No, people don't have a natural entitlement to anything. Any sense of entitlement is only a moral construct.

I dunno, I think so... but that could just be because my dad thinks no one is entitled to anything (especially me; i'm not entitled to free time or whatever else I want) and I just want to disagree with him.

Quite simply, yes.

It's a fundamental human right, to disagree is to endorse the concept of slavery.

Yes. Childbirth, ideas, art, what about people who make up storylines for movies? How about making pouring a bowl of cereal and not getting to eat any? I hardly think you don't want the fruits of your own labor.

i don't know why they wouldn't.

Yes, and that extends to the taxation of one's fruits as being against that natural law. Go Locke!

No, it belongs to the government.

if you work for something why wouldnt you be entitled to it?...
18 yrs ago - Saturday 11/22/03 - 4:08:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
not if they're being paid a wage.

Not in many ways, but in some.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/04 - 7:21:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes I think they do
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/04 - 5:52:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
You reap what you sow.

Fundemental human right? Pshh, human rights are non existant. If they actually were, they would be incapable of being violated.

And how many people have been procecuted for the violation of said right?

As for the fruits of your labor, not really. You do work, and you will recieve some benifit from it. Apprentice raised the foremost reason for why.

From each according to their ability, to each according to their need.
If you can make it, you need to give it, you need to get it.
Entitlement makes humanity greedy, if they are unable to give it to those who need it, they don't get it either.
Unfortunatly Americans, (and most of the world) have gained the idea of entitlement, and allowed it to swell their heads, in the end, we're all f***ed.

No. Hunter-gatherers didn't stand for that crap.
