Your claim to your car

does not rest on your having created it, or knowing where it was built. It is based on paying someone who did all that a mutually agreed on amount to transfer ownership of the car. That does not apply in the claim of "self-ownership." The part about the car breaking down was the weaker part of the argument, admittedly, but the point was that you don't have a strong claim to self-ownership or a weak claim. That is, even if you did not create your life, if you could sustain your life then maybe you would have a weak claim.

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)
