Are we not supposed to understand the difference?

"Covet"

1.to desire wrongfully, inordinately, or without due regard for the rights of others: to covet another's property.
2.to wish for, especially eagerly: He won the prize they all coveted.
verb (used without object)
3.to have an inordinate or wrongful desire.

TO DESIRE WRONGFULLY, and as you've shown, you don't know that to "envy" is to desire wrongfully. You want to figure out how to use peoples unjust desires to serve productive ends, and it can't. IT can only serve YOU if your goal is to steal or destroy.

"Desire"

1.to wish or long for; crave; want.
2.to express a wish to obtain; ask for; request: The mayor desires your presence at the next meeting.
noun
3.a longing or craving, as for something that brings satisfaction or enjoyment: a desire for fame.
4.an expressed wish; request.
5.something desired.
6.sexual appetite or a sexual urge.

The reason you don't care much for names is because you don't want to address the meaning words have. Words convey meaning, and Anarchists hate words that express an Anarchists true purpose; to destroy.

To call "covet" a synonym of "desire" implies people don't know the difference, and THAT I could agree with. Look around the world and you'll know nearly everything men desire is born from and feeds their covetous nature.

If you searched all the earth, could you find even one honest man who only desires what's rightfully coming to him? In our world, there IS truth to calling covet a synonym to desire, and that's why no government or Anarchist utopia can ever sustain itself. They're both destroyed by covetous men.

"Synonym"

1.a word having the same or nearly the same meaning as another in the language, as happy, joyful, elated. A dictionary of synonyms and antonyms (or opposites), such as Thesaurus.com, is called a thesaurus.
2.a word or expression accepted as another name for something, as Arcadia for pastoral simplicity or Wall Street for U.S. financial markets; metonym.
3.Biology . one of two or more scientific names applied to a single taxon.

"a word having the same or nearly the same meaning as another in the language"

In this case; "nearly the same meaning" makes for a world of difference, because ignoring the differences leaves all our desires unjust, and you know that's untrue. If you disagree, stop eating. Stop breathing. Stop fighting for liberty.
