Locke: life, liberty and property
Altered by the Founding-Statists: life liberty and pursuit of happiness
… no acknowledgment of an unalienable right to property in the Declaration
… other peoples property was (and is) viewed as an asset to be acquired (taxed=stolen) and repurposed (redistributed) to suit the needs of the collective and its oligarchs
… the Founding-Statists staged the coup against the Articles of Confederation, created the coercive national government and, again, no protection against the confiscation of private wealth by the central government
Final note: the “Bill of Rights” makes no guarantee of an absolute right to private property.
Happy Dependence Day !
