A question of ownership

Campaign for Liberty

by William Norman Grigg


"Although the legally protected practice of chattel slavery ended

roughly a century and a half ago, politicians routinely insist that

the government is entitled to claim uncompensated labor from the

citizenry in the name of 'community' or 'national' service. ... In any

form, government-compelled 'service' is an assertion of state

ownership of the individual, and a violation of the most fundamental

property right -- self-ownership. In the Western tradition of

individual liberty under law, no other human being, either

individually or acting as part of a collective, can properly claim

ownership over any part of our lives, or the product of our exertions,

without our consent." (02/10/09)
