As for the idea that if you get sick, well, that’s the natural order of things so too bad. . .
You might noticed that money is not exactly something commonly seen in the natural order of things. Therefore, there is obviously no reason not to “steal money from successful people” because them having money isn’t natural, right? And because taking away from those who can’t prevent it is common in the natural order of things, right? Or is “the natural course of things” only to be followed so long as it happens to go along with the whims of those in power?
I’m not sure where you got the “natural order of things” but I don’t believe a society should be without rules if that is what you are implying. That would be ridiculous. Obviously our government is there with the original intention of supplying physical safety from invading armies and to regulate fair trade. The state militias were there to prevent the federal government from abusing their powers and citizens owning guns was granted to protect from the government in case they turned like England was when we escaped in 1700’s.
Getting sick is the natural order of things. Everyone is appointed to die and not one person will miss that appointment. Just because dying is the natural order of things doesn’t mean stealing and murder are acceptable in society. Straw man arguments are only effective againstt he weak of mind.
The bottom line is the overarching natural order of things is nobody has the right to be moronic enough, insane enough, rude enough, enough of a bastard or even enough of a bitch to tell some people they don’t have the right to live as long as other people.
Melee, I’m sure you are a nice person. But I have more faith in Accipiter’s argument (as well as what the others have said) than anything you have said so far.
