[Quote No.44340] Need Area: Property > General
"Private property rights do not conflict with human rights. They are human rights. Private property rights are the rights of humans to use specified goods and to exchange them. Any restraint on private property rights shifts the balance of power from impersonal attributes toward personal attributes and toward behavior that political authorities approve. That is a fundamental reason for preference of a system of strong private property rights: private property rights protect individual liberty." - Armen A. Alchian
From his work, 'Property Rights'.

[Quote No.44629] Need Area: Property > General
"In his history of property rights and civilization, 'The Noblest Triumph', Tom Bethell concludes that private property makes possible liberty, justice, prosperity, and peace. Secure property rights make liberty possible because they fence off a private domain out of the reach of the grasping hand of the state. They make justice possible because property owners reap the rewards and suffer the losses caused by their actions, linking reward to merit. They make prosperity possible because they allow trade. Finally, secure private property rights make peace possible because they enable each individual property owner to pursue his or her own plan, free from the interference of others and without interfering with others." - Andrew P. Morriss

[Quote No.44967] Need Area: Property > General
"[When are private properties not private and private property rights not protected by law? When government chooses to use its exclusive right to the legal use of force to deny that right to the lawful owners for political purposes! For example France's socialist government in 2012:] Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault made it official: the government would requisition vacant buildings regardless of who owned them, including office buildings. It would then convert them to apartments and make them available to the homeless and the 'badly housed.' As a first step, he asked for 'an inventory of available buildings.' That list should be on his desk in 'a few weeks,' he said. He was in a rush to identify these properties 'so that we can undertake at least several operations in January and February 2013.' A desperate move to halt the collapse of his numbers. And another broadside at investors [after recently dramatically increases taxes on high incomes]. It’s getting tough for him and President François Hollande. As France sinks deeper into its economic mire, people are losing patience: those who still have confidence in Hollande plunged to 36%, the lowest level of any president six months after taking office (the data go back to 1981). He dropped to 31% among workers —a catastrophe for a Socialist — and to 21% among shop keepers, artisans, business owners, and CEOs... And Prime Minister Ayrault hit 34%. Among his predecessors, only Édith Cresson in 1991 and Alain Juppé in 1995 were lower. Both were sacked, Cresson 11 months into her term, and Juppé two years into his. Only 19% of the shop keepers, artisans, business owners, and CEOs had any confidence in him — despite his 'gaffe' that he would be open to discussing the 35-hour workweek to bring down the cost of labor, which was followed by furious backpedaling from the entire Socialist power structure. Among workers, his confidence level dwindled to 29%. An untenable position. He should be polishing his resume. Instead, he’d requisition buildings. ...Requisitioning buildings and apartments is a tactic for all sides of the political spectrum [in France]. The law that authorized it was passed in 1945 to deal with the post-World War II housing crunch. And during the 1960s, over 100,000 requisition orders were issued. Advocacy groups such as Jeudi Noir (Black Thursday) and Droit au Logement (Right to Housing) have been pressuring the government to do something about the 'housing crisis.' ...Instead of doing his utmost to encourage private sector construction [and thereby increase employment as well], Prime Minister Ayrault has jumped on the bandwagon of the squatters, sending shivers down the spines of those who invest in real estate development and construction. With perfect timing: just when France desperately needs that business to pick up speed — not only to create sorely needed housing units, but also to create jobs... Unemployment is over 10%, youth unemployment over 25%. In disadvantaged areas, such as a number of volatile suburbs, unemployment is far higher. For example, in Clichy-sous-Bois, an eastern suburb of Paris, unemployment is 22%, and youth unemployment is astronomical. The pressure in these areas is rising. They’ve blown up before. Jobs would relieve some of it. But requisitioning buildings and scaring investors [especially big business, both domestic and foreign, from investing in France] won’t..." - Wolf Richter

[Quote No.45168] Need Area: Property > General
"[Private property rights:] By the democratic principles we espouse, government cannot have a right that citizens do not grant it. There are certain things that a person has no right to do. A person has no right to murder or rape another. Therefore, people cannot grant government authority to murder and rape. Similarly, no person has the right to forcibly take the property of one person in order to give it to another. Therefore, people cannot grant government authority to do the same thing. If I forcibly took property from one person, for any reason, most people would condemn it as theft, an immoral act. Theft or any other immoral act does not become moral because it is done by government acting on behalf of a consensus or majority vote just as murder or rape does not become a moral act simply because of a consensus or majority vote." - Walter Edward Williams
(1936 - ), an American economist, commentator, and academic. He is the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, as well as a syndicated columnist and author known for his libertarian views.

[Quote No.45662] Need Area: Property > General
"What, then, do they want a government for? Not to regulate commerce; not to educate the people; not to teach religion, not to administer charity; not to make roads and railways; but simply to defend the natural rights of man - to protect person and [private] property - to prevent the aggressions of the powerful upon the weak - in a word, to administer justice. This is the natural, the original, office of a government. It was not intended to do less: it ought not to be allowed to do more." - Herbert Spencer

[Quote No.49694] Need Area: Property > General
"[Materialists are less happy partly because they have difficulty being grateful for what they have:] As we amass more and more possessions, we don’t get any happier, we simply raise our reference point [i.e. what we compare our possessions, life, etc., with. If we compare it to something better we feel bad and bitter, but if we compare it to something worse we feel good and grateful]. That new 2,500-square-foot house becomes the baseline for your desires for an even bigger house [as we get used to it and start to take it for granted]. It’s called the 'Treadmill of Consumption'. We continue to purchase more and more stuff but we don’t get any closer to happiness, we simply speed up the treadmill. [A society with an economy based on consumerism and conspicuous consumption cannot allow people to feel satisfied for long for fear of GDP and employment dropping along with the perceived 'standard of living' - perhaps then even inciting political unrest. So one of the jobs of advertising is to spread knowledge of the newer, better, bigger, more expensive, more prestigious, etc., things and experiences that by comparison makes what we have seem less and so we can become dissatisfied with our present situation and set the goal to acquire the advertised thing in order to 'respect and admire' ourselves and be satisfied and happy again. This is one side of a free society and a free market economy. The other side is that each individual can choose for themselves what best suits their different needs, desires, priorities and resources. For the self-disciplined person who understand the power of comparison to both create dissatisfaction inspiration or contented gratitude, the continual improvement in quality and quantity of choice in a free society is a boon.]" - Dr. James Roberts

(1874-1936) British essayist, critic, poet, and novelist. Source: Broadcast talk, June 11, 1935.

[Quote No.50757] Need Area: Property > General
"It is not the right of property which is protected, but the right to [private] property. Property, per se, has no rights; but the individual - the man - has three great rights, equally sacred from arbitrary interference: the right to his life, the right to his liberty, the right to his property.... The three rights are so bound together as to be essentially one right. To give a man his life but deny him his liberty, is to take from him all that makes his life worth living. To give him his liberty but take from him the property which is the fruit and badge of his liberty, is to still leave him a slave." - George Sutherland
U.S. Supreme Court Justice
