“If we assume that there is no coercion then the first order of incentive for the human being is to meet one’s own needs. Since it is possible to meet one’s own needs by taking action, that is what is done. What we acquire from our labor we are able to keep, presumably. It can be deduced that this basic property right is necessary and sufficient to make a person willing to work.
A negative corollary is that without the right to receive the fruits of one’s labor there would be an unwillingness to work. Nothing destroys the willingness to work faster than removing the human right to ‘reap what you sow.’”
