    It's nothing of the kind. It really isn't.

    oh,, will you please tell me what they are, becuase i know of no law more powerful than constitutional law.

    Statutory law or statute law is written law (as opposed to oral or customary law) set down by a legislature (as opposed to regulatory law promulgated by the executive or common law of the judiciary) or by a legislator (in the case of an absolute monarchy).[1] Statutes may originate with national, state legislatures or local municipalities. Statutory laws are subordinate to the higher constitutional laws of the land.

    I actually is. Ownership means control of a resource. If a person can't control who comes onto his property, if a person can't control who he interacts with, then that is a violation of his property rights in his body and in his home/store.

    You have control. You can keep it to yourself. You don't have to enter the public market.

    You can enter the racket place if you choose. But if you choose to, you have to follow the rules. Don't discriminate as they have rights as well.

    So are you saying that one should lose his property rights if he decides to enter the market? Why should someone lose the right to control his body and property just because he chooses to engage in trade?
