I'm missing something here, I think.
It's a very appropriate comparison. The apartment building represents a collective run by a person or small group of people. It's tenets are born into this collective and become subject to the collective. The head of this collective does not give us the right to own our apartment unit nor does the head give us the right to defend ourselves and associate freely. The head also probably creates incentive for these trespassers using funds that the head extorts from the tenets by coercion. IF the unit I am living in is believed to be mine then I should own this unit and only I can decide who comes in and who doesn't. If not, then the head must be removed.Imagine if you live in an apartment building with 50 units. Now imagine that the guy who owns the building declares that you can't lock your doors. You can't prohibit people from just walking in and using your shower and sleeping in your bed whenever they feel like it.
I feel that's a semi-appropriate comparison.
