I believe Locke was very clear that he was talking about the justification for the private enclosure of something that was not "unowned" but rather previous "owned in common"...

yeah, I steered clear of the "owned in common" quite intentionally.  Too much heat from the objectivists.  They really hate that "land communist" stuff.  This guy quoted John Galt at the bottom of the article.  Explains why his example assumes everything being owned to begin with.

On further reading whoever wrote that was retarded.

It states very clearly that mixing your labor with property that you already own creates property.  That's retarded.  This person clearly missed the point and tried to repeat something they didn't understand.

He falls short of defining Locke's theory though.  IN the above example he talks about purchasing nails and wood then forming those nails and wood into a house thus owning the house.  Of course if he owns the nails and wood then he owns the house. 

Locke's labor based property goes more like: If a man cuts down a tree that is previously unowned and builds a house with that tree then he owns the house having mixed his labor with the unowned property (the tree) thus making it owned property.

At the time this was the basis for claiming land that no one owned.  If you farmed it than you owned it as labor based property.  Without the labor there was no ownership.

FSP members, how's the weed in NH? Any FSP smoke-out sessions?

I bought a bag there a couple of years ago.  It was good but FAR more expensive than I'm used to in the midwest.  10-15 bucks a gram for a small bag of good indoor hydro if my memory serves.

I heard a listener from Kansas City on the show the other day.  It occured to me that I might find a volunteer here to man an FSP table with me on 6/19 at Verizon Amphitheatre.  I need at least one more person before they'll let us reserve a spot.
