[...]To own something generally means that you've purchased it. The reason that a person doesn't have what your greedy owner does is because that first person lacks the ability to make an adequate exchange.The idea that you can own something and have complete control of it including the right to deny other people use of it (even if they need it more - hell, even if they need it to survive) has been elevated to the position of an absolute moral right in some people's minds. Any suggestion that there might be an alternative to this is quickly shot down with indignation and sarcasm, as amply demonstrated by some of the commenters here
Money is the exchange of property. In summary, to clean up what I'm trying to state, money is property. It is the very basic basis of ownership.
