    Sure they are.

    J, can we schedule an intervention? We need to wean you off the hard stuff (rabid conservative hyperbole).

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    They are still initiating aggression by taking the house against the will of the owner. The fact that they deign to give the owner money doesn't make their aggression legitimate.

    You cannot accept that the government is empowered to recognize your property rights with a deed or with an offer to buy as part of their legal authority but then pretend that they do not also have the legititimate authority to exercise eminent domanin which is clearly Constitutional and legal as part of our long standing property rights in the USA.
    Actually, I don't buy the idea that the state (an organization that initiates aggression) should have any special powers to recognize or not recognize who owns what goods. Such a function could be performed by institutions that don't initiate aggression.

    I am perfectly consistent with regard to the state - in so far as it initiates aggression, it is acting in an unethical and illegitimate manner.

    But you do and did. You gave us two specific answers both using the power and recognistion of government as to who legally owns property. You are already on record regarding that authority and your own acceptance of it.

    No, I think that I'd prefer that ownership records be maintained by people who don't initiate aggression against others.

    I try to consistently advocate against the initiation of aggression, so since the function CAN be performed in a non-aggressive way, I would have to conclude that it SHOULD be done in a non-aggressive way.

    Sorry but you are already on record here giving two statements that you would look to government authority to establish ownership. The same government .... the same authority .... the same Constitution .... the same legal system .... that does that for you also has eminent domain as part of its property rights structure.
