Is Liberty Only for Owners of Land/Websites?Submitted by Micah68 on Mon, 12/23/2013 - 00:07
I'm thinking a lot these days about the nature of Liberty, where it comes from and how someone can actually have it.
- every person who owns land (or a website, etc.) governs that land as essentially a private dictator
- if the entire world is subdivided into these lands, each a private dictatorship, then those who are visitors, renters or trespassers on that land must abide by the whims of the owner
Doesn't this mean that anyone who doesn't own land (or a website) has no true Liberty, since they can only exercise their religion, speech, etc. subject to the dictates of the 'lords' of the various lands? How is it an inalienable right, under natural law, if so?
Any thoughts? :)
