Sure.


So why shouldn't the community decide in this case?

In fact, since I'm the only one who turned off my adblocker when asked to, I'm the only one actually paying my rent here.

Hmm.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

I think the community is united in the belief that you have rights... What more do you want?

I don't trust pop-up ads. I'd be happy to pay dues though. Smiley I'll send a check.

You could hook up with some other people wanting things (like a heart, or a brain, or courage) and follow the yellow brick road to see the Wizard... He'll fix you up with rights. Smiley

You don't understand logic. You stated I had no rights. My rights were questioned.

Since I have absolutely no evidence my rights exist, I must concede that they don't.

You established that taking from one and giving to another is legitimate for something that society needs to function, and you gave the great example of basic education, because a civilised society cannot be maintained if many people are not educated.

I say that a civilised society cannot be maintained without everyone having the same basic rights. So, since I have none, I will ask the community to decide if it's a good idea for me to take some of yours, and if they say yes, that creates legitimacy.

You said you are a dragon, and it's illogical to imagine dragons having human rights. Kiss

I rescinded that statement because you can't be expected to treat a fellow thinking and reasoning being with rights if it has scales and isn't bipedal.

I still won't say I'm Human because I think it shouldn't matter.

But what if someone proved to you I was Human? What if I admitted it? You might say I had rights but that's past mattering.

If you say I don't have a unicorn and I can't find a unicorn, then logic suggests I don't have a damn unicorn.

Yeah, yeah, you admitted your lie, then you immediately lied again, and claimed to be a Vulcan.

Even parasitic worms have human rights? Is that what you're saying?

That's what it sounds like to me. Cool
