Property Rights ARE Human Rights by BlameThe1st Property Rights ARE Human Rights by BlameThe1st
"Though the earth, and all inferior creatures, be common to all men, yet every man has a property in his own person: this no body has any right to but himself. The labour of his body, and the work of his hands, we may say, are properly his. Whatsoever then he removes out of the state that nature hath provided, and left it in, he hath mixed his labour with, and joined to it something that is his own, and thereby makes it his property. It being by him removed from the common state nature hath placed it in, it hath by this labour something annexed to it, that excludes the common right of other men: for this labour being the unquestionable property of the labourer, no man but he can have a right to what that is once joined to, at least where there is enough, and as good, left in common for others."

- John Locke, "Of Property," Second Treatise of Government.

I am astounded of the amount of people below saying that a right to have property or even possess items is bad...

There are always losers and there will always be winners, it has been that way ever since ancient Sumeria and It will not change, soviet or Chinese communist idea cannot change human nature.

Moviebob once put it best: Property is so innate to our nature that even a dog gets angry when you take its bone away from it.

Locke here sounds strangely identical to: [link] or even: [link]
