Law (or government) originated when several individuals jointly agreed to combine their natural right to protect and defend their life, property, and freedom. Using offensive force to take property from others is theft whether an individual does it or a group does it. Just law and just government must always be defensive.
All theft, including government-sanctioned theft; leads to violence. A homeowner will use the threat of violence to defend against armed robbery. This is a defensive use of force against illegal theft and it is just. Legal theft turns justice upside down by restricting our God given right to defend private property.
