Depends what you mean by violence. If you mean physical violence then it's perfectly possible to redistribute without it (I'll just pop in when you're out).

As I stated numerous times in the previous argument (which I stopped participating in becaue it was causing more heat than light), I do believe that people should be allowed to keep the vast majority of the money they earn. I just don't believe in "rights" as an absolute. I believe rights are assigned by society or taken by a person. I certianly don't believe that the right to property is an absolute (although I beleive it's extremely useful so it should be protected in numerous ways). I just believe there are greater goods than property protection (life protection, for instance).
