but with a few minutes thought, you can come up with many others...
water rights: how about a stream? a body of moving water that crosses your property, can you put a dam on it?
how high up in the air do you actually own? and into the earth, how far down does your property go? I know the conventional wisdom now, is whatever the EPA says or the latest corporate law to be shoved down our throats, but that's not the real answer...I'm looking for something along the lines of:
how high in the sky does your property extend? answer: as high as can support human breath without a mechanical aid.
how far down does your property go? answer: as far down as the human body can survive the temperature and pressure sans mechanical aides.
as for those tangible, material items on this earth that are mobile,fluid or otherwise transportable that we can lay claim to such as the moving bodies of water and wildlife, I say that those things are there for the public good (more on that later)and that there should be some kind of regulating body (believe me I loathe that word 'regulation' but I don't know what else to call it)
there is such a thing as the public good, I think it gets conflated with that fuzzy idea of group rights most times, but as we all know there is no such thing as a "group right" only individuals can have rights. I digress.
an example of the public good, would be the oxygen that we all breathe. We wouldn't want that to suddenly disappear right? it's there for all of us to breathe... we wouldn't want Pepsi or Coca Cola to bottle it up and sell it to visiting aliens, right? and we know that's exactly what they would do, and I'm not trying to be funny about that either...
so there has to be some mechanism, some document, some explicit agreement of the people inhabiting a given area that there are some things that you can lay absolute claim to and others that must be shared, or recognized in some way that it is part of a whole.
how that squares with the AnCap theory, is what I want to know.
