Property Rights

Written by Christianity and the Confusion on July 28th, 2007

When it comes to the issue of property rights the question that rises is, “whose property is being protected?” This clip is from our local news, it is about a dispute between an owner of a 50 year old landfill and new neighbors who want it shut down. The question is whose property rights should be protected?

    Good question and one that is not often thought about. This one sounds like there is more to the story than either side is talking about, but I would say the landfill was there first and as such should have first rights. The wine vineyards look nicer and are more appealing to the yuppie mind set, but if that is how we regulate land use, we are true hypocrites.

    Why is it an yuppie thing? If that dump is leaking into the water system it is a danger to everyone.
