Your property rights to your home expire the moment you skip a property tax payment, you property rights to your car expire the moment the government decides they don’t like your car anymore.
The government is not God (contrary to what the Left believe), Rights are self evident regardless of what demonic manifestation of government happens to be holding the guns that day.
I have never argued that government defines anything that matters, I have argued that man’s specific application of ideas are his property whether it be the books he has written or the inventions that he has brought into reality.
This is obviously the polar opposite of what the Left believes, the Left believe that everything should be owned collectively and that individuals have no private property Rights.
There will never be a time where those who believe in rugged individualism will find agreement with those who embrace the collective, my side tolerates very little collective ownership of property and the opposition wants as much collective ownership of property as possible.
I rarely even quote others when I am making a point in debate for this reason, I have no Right to the words of those I respect and zero ownership in my own opinions if I cannot argue them with my own words; I also have no Right to define the context and application of another man’s words.
However the government has not defined those parameters, I could link and quote all day every day and I could bastardize those quotes by sliding them into any context I choose to further corrupt the author; I would be breaking no laws in doing so but I would be violating the Property Rights of whoever originated the quotes.
Government is not God no matter how many guns the Left can put under government control.
