Simply allowing for the rights of others to think or worship differently than one's self is, a most shallow but necessary postulated sequence in freedom and liberty's recognition. Unalienable rights are neither good or evil, they just are.

Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown

You sick violent property mongers must understand that the planet's resources, notably land distribution must be shared by all. Everyone has a right to a peaceful nights rest and sleep. You violent property hoarders have no natural right to leaving the well meaning individual deprived of a descent night sleep.
