Property Rights

Human Rights

  • "It is no accident that a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to justice for all protects property rights. Property is the foundation of every right we have, including the right to be free. Every right claim, after all, is a claim to something — either a defensive claim to keep what one is holding or an offensive claim to something someone else is holding." Cato Handbook for Policymakers

The right to liberty and pursuit of happiness, protection against unreasonable search and seizure, and many other rights, are predicated on property rights, among others.
