Government regulatory agencies, environmentalists, liberal politicians, courts and proponents of the “common good” have worked hard during the past 30 years to make property rights less important if not eliminate them all together where they could.
Modern teachings (a.k.a.: Agenda 21) tell us we are in this together and we need to give up our property rights for the common good. They say feeling the pain of others regardless of how extreme their opinions are is a the duty of all citizens. All of this is pure poppy –cock and is the first step on the slippery slope to socialism. Nothing in this kind of thinking goes to support the principles of capitalism and American Constitutional Government. Nor does this support the principles of self reliance, and the virtues of work to take care of yourself and your family or to save rather than borrow. Socialism does not encourage personal self-reliance. Socialism is based on central planning and that means individual rights are pushed to the back.
