TOLFA Segment 4, Question 2

It's all very well to say people will respect others' self-ownership right in order to live consistently with themselves. Fact is, some folk are expert at compartmentalizing their lives and won't do that. What then, for your system of ethics? Today, that's correct, some are. But that's because today, there are incentives to do evil - to violate rights. Government often pays good wages! In a free society, matched to the rational reality of self-ownership, such incentives will be rare indeed
That's another beauty of a free society: no such artificial compartmentalization wil be needed
You're right; it will never work. Mankind is too twisted to reform himself

Don't hurry away; even when you've got the right answer, try clicking on the others to see why they are wrong! Then when you have correctly answered this make notes in your student notebook, then go to Question 3.
