The flaw in your example is "you TOOK someone's piece of marble." You
may have added value to the marble FOR THE OWNER, if he likes your
statue. Or, you may have REDUCED it's value to the owner, if he
intended to use the marble for a counter top. The point being, that you
cannot base "increased value" arguments when you base your premise on
STEALING the item in the first place.
And the rivalrousness statement goes along with Kinsella's concept that
there can be no value in something unless there is a scarcity of that
item. In other words, he thinks it would be fine for others to demand
that YOU do one hour of work for them a day for free, and that is
acceptable until more than 24 people have made that same demand.

Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer. Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
