Discussion of property
rights are better conducted within the context of 'territory'.
And here if territory is defined in emotional terms I begin to
understand Robert Ardrey's idea of "Territorial Imperative." It's
not stuff being wants, rather it's security and status, which stuff
sometimes substitutes for as long as there's is an endless supply of it
in both the ether and hardware store.
The internet will one day be owned by the
least secure amongst us because the least secure amongst us eventually own
everything, and when they do they look to the stars and build rocket ships.
It's clearly a huge error to hope that security and status might belong to
us all, which is why I look to the beatitudes and wish I could believe the
meek will inherit the earth..
