That's not how it works..

There are several problems here:

1. Your description of the social outcomes of the marketplace. The marketplace doesn't care how smart you are. It cares about what you produce. Hence, intelligence is only part of the equation and no where near deserving of all the credit for outcomes. And since I'm pretty sure you already know that, it makes you all the more intellectually dishonest for pursuing this line of reasoning.

2. All of your corollary arguments from #1 fall off.

3. Your point about moral relativity, however is interesting. I agree with you that the law is not morality. Practicality aside, what system of morality do you know of that is more moral than the "non-aggression principal?" I'm asking you for your opinion.
