    Re: Do You Agree with John Stossel?

    I agree with Stossel.

    I am of the opinion that every person, apart from being the sole owner of his physical body, has the right to employ his private property in any way he sees fit so long as he does not initiate aggression against others. I consider aggression to be the initiation or threatening of violence against a person or legitimately-owned property of another. Specifically, any unsolicited actions of others that physically affect an individuals property or person, no matter if the result of those actions is damaging, beneficial, or neutral to the owner, are considered violent or aggressive when they are against the owner's free will and interfere with his right to self-determination and the principle of self-ownership.

    I would argue that the public accommodations part of the law ought to be done away with, because it is precisely the sort of initiation of aggression I oppose, while the person who excludes someone from his property may be being a dick, but is not initiating aggression against anyone or their property.

    It is not cheaper than mine, our associate in Montreal would gladly take out insurance if they could opt out of yours.

    you knock, and see if you are invited in, becuase it is private property.

    you walk in becuase the private property owner is extending the privilege of you his business.........becuase he wants your money/business

    when you enter into government public buildings, these are paid by the tax payers, and serve the interest of the people.

    when a business owner opens to the public he extends privileges (there are no rights to enter a business) to the public, and pays his own taxes, and works in his own interest....not in the public's interest.

    Most people and we spend far less then U.S. per capita on healthcare actually every country does. We have some of the best healthcare and I would say 95%+ prefer our system. I would assume he's the same guy that complains about all his taxes, you do know it turns out cheaper if you have everyone pay a little bit than one person paying lump sum. If he doesn't like taxes don't live in Montreal.
