  •  Ownership, like citizenship, is a bundle of (6+ / 0-)

    obligations. That ownership is some sort of privilege is a scam. Moreover, property rights not only trump human rights, property rights are a sop to disguise that individual human rights and liable to being ignored entirely.
    Children, for example, have no recognized rights because they are considered the property of their parents, to be removed in the event  that parents are found wanting in meeting their obligations.

    The rule of law is not what it is cracked up to be, either. The law can be employed as an intrument of domination against which there is virtually no recourse because it is impersonal, persistent and immortal. To put it in a nutshell, the law's head can't be offed when it becomes intolerable.
