    Tyranny Of Ownership

    Okay, there is nothing wrong with ownership, but I believe nature ought to regulate ownership, not Government, or at least only as far as natural. Because we all need to have ownership over some stuff, where we can do what we please with what we own. Like owning food, modest...
