Conceptually why have we made distinctions between property and intellectual ownership? and within that why does some intellectual property expire after a time and why do different things expire after different times? Are there some intellectual properties we cannot own like though itself? I guess essentially what I'm asking is why have we classified these differently and how have we justified that?

What are your thoughts on Geolibertarianism? - The Power of Land: Georgism 101

https://youtu.be/smi_iIoKybg

Geolibertarianism is a form of Georgist libertarianism. The basic idea behind Georgism is that land and natural resources are not the fruits of anyone's labor, so no one has a natural right to it. Georgism proposes based on this that collective ownership arrangements be applied to such resources. Geolibertarianism supports full private property rights in the products of labor.

Hello everyone.

I wanted to share this one thought with you that I really became aware of just recently. Libertarianism, at its core, is all about personal freedom. It is therefore the highest good worth protecting. But how exactly should it be protected and by whom?

It is obvious that a society writes its core values into its constitution and affirm them by law, but it becomes more complicated when it comes to adhering to these common values. Who ensures that these rules are followed? Who punishes violations?

Whether it is the state or a private company, in all cases you are dependent on the reliability of a third party. How this third party deals with the task it has been entrusted with is, however, its responsibility. As long as this third party is not controlled by another third party, it can act with the trust as it sees fit, not always to the benefit of the client.

That bings up the question why we should ever rely on the state or any private company to protect our values. In the end, we are all on our own. Whether freedom, privacy or security, we cannot afford to become dependent on others. We have to find ways to do it ourselves and these ways exist. I don't want to rule out that third parties may be given the task of protectiing them but I think that we need a technically independent safeguard. Encryption, privacy tools or self-defense devices are just few examples of this.

Hey fellow libertarians,

I'm writing this post because I really got annoyed by the recent increase of low effort and often also low information posts shared in this community. When I tried formulating the rules when creating this community, my main focus was to create a culture of civil and constructive discussion.

There are a lot of possible ways to contribute to this goal and I don't want to exclude any type of content in any way. But to prevent meaningless spam, I thought about adjusting the 3d rule to better align with the aforementioned goals.

Lemmy offers the great opportunity to share an image or a link together with some text to explain it. Based on this, I'd add something like: "the context and relevance of otherwise textless or shared content should be explained in words by it's contributor." or "the information of shared/remote types of content should be evident from the post itself without the need of visiting the source." Also, we could start requiring a TLDR for shared news posts.

What do you guys think?

About us

An open, user owned community for the general disscussion of the libertarian philosophy.

Most people live their own lives by that code of ethics. Libertarians believe that that code should be applied consistently, even to the actions of governments, which should be restricted to protecting people from violations of their rights. Governments should not use their powers to censor speech, conscript the young, prohibit voluntary exchanges, steal or “redistribute” property, or interfere in the lives of individuals who are otherwise minding their own business.
