  • On Property Rights III
    by Skyler J. Collins (Editor) on July 22, 2022 at 7:40 pm

  • On Ideas
    by Skyler J. Collins (Editor) on July 21, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Post by Skyler J. Collins (Editor). Ideas are not ownable. Ownability requires scarcity (rivalrousness). There is exactly zero possibility of physical conflict over the use of ideas because everybody in the universe can use an idea simultaneously without physically interfering with anybody else's use.

  • On Abortion
    by Skyler J. Collins (Editor) on May 30, 2022 at 6:51 pm

For that reason they fight for the right for women to abort their unborn babies without fear of legal reprisal by governments.
