I'm sorry, but your argument is ridiculous. A life has primacy over property. If a child is dying, and needs to get to a hospital, the parents, or the police, or any number of other people might well demand the use of your car to save her life. A life is more valuable than property.cliff Excuse me... but what about the situation where property IS life?The guy who comes into the cabin and eats another's food could be depriving the other of that which would save his/her own life.The person who depends upon insulin -- which happens to be in the car you just appropriated -- could die without the property you felt it was your right to take.There are many instances and examples. To say that "a life is more valuable than property" is about the same as emoting about the golden rule. Sometimes it is correct. Sometimes it is not.AM
