Right to NOT contract

Property is founded on life because contracts are founded on life. Let's be plain here:

The category of "rights" as defined in contracts is predicated on consent. If there is no consent, there is no contract. That much should be clear.

All I'm saying is that if you are trying to maintain a civilization based on law, you had better be very very VERY careful about what you're saying your citizens have "consented" to lest Robespierre start sharpening his blade.
