It is said that “a chain is as strong as its weakest link”. We all know what a chain looks like, therefore it is easy to visualize and understand. Replace the chain with something that is abstract, like a right or ownership, you know what they are and can describe what they mean but you can’t visualize them. Then apply the concept of a weak link and imagine how it would erode the rights you have. Except now the link isn’t a single item but rather a whole host of things merrily chipping away at your rights and property.
Tom Deweese joins us On The Commons. Tom is the founder and president of the Virginia based American Policy Center, a speaker, a passionate advocate for property rights and an author. Tom has written several books, his newest book, Sustainable: The War on Free Enterprise, Private Property and Individuals. In a clear and easy to understand way, he explains how, we have lost rights and freedoms over the years. In order to put things in context I ask Tom why property rights matter If you thought it is so you can paint your from door any color you choose, that’s the least of it. Click on the link for a free, downloadable pamphlet, tune in to the show and hear Tom discuss some the issues, read the book and decide to do your bit to salvage what is left of your and your children’s rights.
