Since you have no interest in owning yourself, I will fill that void and claim ownership over you— after all, you’re nothing but a biological automaton, right? I talked it over with “society” and they agreed (once I explained things to them). As my first act as your new owner, I command you to demonstrate your loyalty to me by occupying a hole in the ground until I say “stop.” Big Grin

You're not likely to get agreement from a person that is steadfast on refusing to agree. I'm fairly certain the vast majority of people (better than 95%) will benefit from the idea they own themselves and that it will assist them in bringing about a voluntary society. It seems almost certain that it will assist them more than trying to convince them they don't own themselves and that non-ownership of themselves will better assist them in bringing about a voluntary society. By reason, people can come to agreement on what ownership is so as to use it in their agreements. Those that can't or don't want to, wont use it in their agreements.

I'll stick with the 95%, thank you very much, NonEntity. [Image: biggrin.gif]

Well, this is the issue as I see it: The idea of rights and ownership and such interrelated stuff can be very beneficial. But I do believe that they are only beneficial when people understand that these ideas are beneficial if CHOSEN.

I agree. Rights and ownership are product of reason and come into existence by agreement -- chosen by voluntary support.

The thought of how far the human race would have advanced absent initiatory force
staggers the imagination.

THE POINT: Unlike the government thief, a common thief doesn't claim his "craft" is honest.
Lawyer-like dishonesty a point: The common thief is honest when he tells you he's robbing you.
