sonofed: The answer is no, you can not morally take the food of another without their consent to save your own life. The reason is that by taking that
action, you are valuing your life above anothers, which, while understandable, has no basis in the morality we are discussing.

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.

that, we think, is the heart of the matter:

why Cliff?
why is any/(every?) life more valuable than *my* property?
