I meant precisely what I wrote ... the function of law is to make liable not grant permission.
I provided a crystal clear example because most people are somewhat familiar with the ten commandments irregardless of belief.
If the law says thou shall not kill the law does not grant permission to do anything but kill. It creates a liability for killing.
Because you are clueless on how the system actually works and everyone has a right to pursue happiness what the real estate license law does is make a liability to pursue a private gain or profit in a real estate occupation.
Money can not buy happiness and so pursuing private gain or profit is not a fundamental right, as far as present constitutions are concerned. It is the reason constitutions say the right to pursue happiness and be rewarded for industry. They do not say a right to pursue industry merely a right to be rewarded for the profits of a privileged pursuit.
Selling one's own house is not practicing the occupation of real estate but if one pursues a private gain or profit from the sale of a house there are other laws which establish a liability for that income because ... money can not buy happiness and any activity pursuing private gain or profit is a privilege, whether there is a legislated liability established or not, as far as the present constitutional systems are structured.
