Makes Sense To Me!

From a little essay at The Gates of Vienna and a contribution from American Thinker.....

I like this excerpt:

"The first law of moral theology is that an owner has to act like an owner."

A simple line that many self appointed Moral Theologists will probably dispute or dismiss as fallacious. I do not really care if it actually is The First Law of Moral Theology or even any Law of any kind.

It strikes me as a logical point of view about how a person should behave if they expect to have their rights or privileges respected.

It also seems to me that all to often when ordinary citizens try to apply their right to assert dominion over their own person and property they /we are caught up in a storm of hostility from all sorts of groups and institutions that seem to be ever more entrenched in the philosophy of collective rights taking precedence over the welfare and security of the individual. I certainly do not think that by finding a door unlocked or unguarded any person is then justified in trespass and theft of property. But I do understand the concept of taking responsibility for your own person and property.

No I would not call it the First Law of anything .... but I would put it this way :

"The first rule of being an owner of anything is that an owner has to act like an owner."

To exert dominion over one's own person and property and rights and to defend these vigorously is necessary to anyone who claims to be entitled to these things.

Now would anyone like to talk about Gun Control Laws or Property Rights?

While conservative individuals continue to seek logic and good sense!

So many LIberals continue to display Mental Disorder !

What property isn't something the government gives you?
