Quote of the Day
Feb 21st, 2017 by Ken Hagler

Pri­vate prop­er­ty own­er­ship has noth­ing even remote­ly to do with polit­i­cal bor­ders. Prop­er­ty lines are deter­mined nonag­gres­sive­ly, they are sub­ject to mar­ket forces, own­ers are strict­ly lim­it­ed in what they can do by con­sid­er­a­tions of pro­por­tion­al­i­ty and equal lib­er­ty (if you smoke in my house or tres­pass on my lawn I have a right to throw you off my prop­er­ty; I don’t have a right to lock you in a cage or throw you out of the coun­try). They are wild­ly dif­fer­ent in scope and pow­ers grant­ed and process­es by which they are estab­lished, enforced, divid­ed and real­lo­cat­ed. One is a spa­tial expres­sion of indi­vid­ual lib­er­ty and the oth­er is a col­lec­tive assault upon it. Equat­ing the two is sophistry on a par with “Banks are a good place to put your mon­ey. The Mis­sis­sip­pi Riv­er has two banks. There­fore, the side of the Mis­sis­sip­pi Riv­er is a good place to leave your mon­ey.”
