      Oct 2 2011: If it's built in to the country's laws, it's not “robbery” but “socialism”. Have you ever noticed that, in general, the richer a person is, the less sense socialism makes? Odd, that.

        Oct 2 2011: so if we give it a name, it is OK?

          Oct 3 2011: No, giving something a name does not automatically make it okay. What I wrote was mostly a joke, though it does have a serious side.

          A rich man might pay law enforcement officers to keep people away from his property. Or he can be taxed in the name of social welfare. Either way he pays, and either way there is a reduced incentive to steal his possessions. But which way costs less in the long run?

          Different people have different beliefs about that.
