Teaching ownership

Ownership has long been suspect in my mind. That owning property is a trap has not been entirely clear.

Rex publicans, in addition to being status conscious, are literal-minded and look upon children as the property of their parents, whom they consider obligated for their nurture and care. An ownership society, as GWB identified the USA, is based on the proposition that owning property is the basis of law and the mechanism for holding individuals accountable to the state. In exchange for protecting the owners of property (people or things), the state is entitled to tell the individual natural person what to do. The natural person who owns nothing is, in theory, subject to only one law–not to cause injury to another. Of course, when all natural resources have been declared the property of another, a person acquiring sustenance and/or shelter for himself is likely to be considered a theft. So, it is really not possible to survive as a free and unencumbered person in an ownership society, unless a significant number of owners are into sharing.

You can see how giving free food and drink is considered a violation of the basic principles of an ownership society.

Free school lunches obviously teach children the wrong lesson. How will they learn obedience if there is no threat that supper will be withheld?
