TOLFA Segment 4, Question 3

You say that in a free-market society people will respect others' rights in order to protect their own reputation, ie out of self-interest. But why should A care whether B respects the rights of C? He won't. You're a Utopian
Even if he doesn't, a good justice system would swiftly take care of the anomaly
The underlying premise of a free society is that its members want it that way; that they all subscribe to the rational belief in self-ownership and would leave if they don't. Therefore, A will care if he sees C's rights violated, and will decline to do further business with B

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 4.
