Doug Casey on Rent Strikes, the Erosion of Property Rights, and What Comes Next

• https://www.lewrockwell.com by Doug Casey

What is your take on this?

Doug Casey: Property rights are basic to human rights. In fact, it doesn't make any sense to talk about human rights unless you talk about property rights.

Your primary form of property is your own body. But things outside of your body are equally as important. You can't survive without possessions, things that belong to you alone, and that you are responsible for. "Rent strikers"—who are philosophically aligned with socialists, communists, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and similar groups— don't see it that way, however. They believe their problems are your problems. They're completely irresponsible.

They seem to think that saying something, no matter how irrational, can make it so. And saying that you shouldn't have to pay rent makes it possible to roll back the laws of economic reality.
