an in­come sufficient to live in dignity

If I have a right to freedom of speech, to privacy, or to the ownership of a house, everyone else has an obligation to respect it. But when I claim a “right” to “an in­come sufficient to live in dignity,” whether I am willing to work for it or not, what I am really claim­ing is a right to part of somebody else’s earned income. What I am asserting is that he has a duty to earn more than he needs or wants to live on so that the surplus may be seized from him and turned over to me to live on.
