The Rights to Private Property and Religious Liberty: Mutually Reinforcing Bonds

Symposium

Abstract

It is worth noting that the historical development of the notion of private property and its juridical protection largely arise out of challenges to it, attempts to confiscate, expropriate, or control it by both common thieves and despots. In this way, it may be argued that one’s hold of one’s property is something prior to law, something that law is formulated to protect and something that it is an instinctive notion of justice to protect when this innate sensibility is somehow challenged.
