Comment: It's a dilemma. Property

(See in situ)


It's a dilemma. Property

It's a dilemma. Property rights are necessary to civil society, wouldn't you say? But ownership and especially transfer of those rights, well, we haven't quite figured that out yet.

Here's where I agree wholeheartedly with you... The earth belongs to the living, and by the fact that you are alive, you have a right to pursue what you need to live, and that requires access to property.

Suppose you were born, came of age, and all property was already owned and no one was willing to sell you any property? Would you have a right to take what you needed to live? I think so.

I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be. Albert Einstein
