  Property (ownership right) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Property is usually thought of in terms of a bundle of rights as defined and protected by the local sovereignty which itself, by definition, has "exclusive right to exercise supreme authority" concerning that property.
Through property rights, Blackstone thought, which is why he emphasized that indemnification must be awarded a nonconsenting owner whose property is taken by eminent domain, and that a property owner is protected against physical invasion of his property by the laws of trespass and nuisance.

 The Right to Private Property by Tibor R. Machan - Essay   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The right to private property would have no place in such a system, for such a right, properly protected, would make it possible for wealth to be spent on goals other than giving it to the poor—according to Unger, a violation of not just a moral but ideally a legal imperative.
Property rights may not have been explicitly identified as such in ancient times, although the Old Testament ban on stealing is not far from the doctrine as understood later by Locke and other classical liberals.
Property may be given to one we now regard a thief or to one from whom the thief stole, and overall social gain or loss would be the same, at least for the time being.

 The Right to Private Property [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
One reason that it must be shown that the social regulative principle of a right to private property is sound and that it ought to be respected and protected in human community life is that it is a vital conceptual or logical implication of the individualist story.
So the right to private property is the concrete manifestation of the possibility of responsible conduct in a community where there are lots of people who need to know what they ought to do and with what they ought to do it.
There is an assumption underlying the right to private property, and indeed many other elements of classical liberalism or libertarianism, namely, that we have a task to live properly in the midst of a natural environment, a natural world.

 ESR | February 23, 2004 | RS 2477 reform is needed to protect private property
And since there is a vast array of other laws that can be used to create private easements for access (as opposed to public highways), inholders do not need to put their own property at risk.

 Protecting Private Property Rights from Regulatory Takings
As federal, state, and local regulations have increased in number and scope, property owners have increasingly found themselves unable to use their property and unable to recover the losses that result.
That means that property owners, both large and small, bear the full costs of the public goods the regulations bring about, when in all fairness those costs should be borne by the public that orders those goods in the first place.
When "property" means simply the underlying estate, however, then government can take all the uses that go with the property-- leaving the owner with the empty shell of ownership--and get out from under the compensation requirement.

 Jonathan Adler on Private Property & Supreme Court on National Review Online
The regulatory action was the equivalent of a forced leasehold whereby the landowners were required to cede their property to a government agency for the duration of the rule.
Writing for the majority, Justice Stevens noted that a particularly oppressive moratorium might constitute a taking of private property in specific circumstances, but this would need to be determined on a case-by-case basis under what is known as the "Penn Central test" — a fact-intensive ad hoc legal inquiry under which landowners are rarely compensated.
Moreover, although Tahoe landowners were "temporarily" barred from using their property for at least six years — some are still unable to develop — the Court only considered whether the first 32 months constituted a regulatory taking of private property requiring compensation under the Fifth Amendment.

 How Private Property Saved the Pilgrims by Tom Bethell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Having tried what Bradford called the “common course and condition”—the communal stewardship of the land demanded of them by their investors—Bradford reports that the community was afflicted by an unwillingness to work, by confusion and discontent, by a loss of mutual respect, and by a prevailing sense of slavery and injustice.
So the land they worked was converted into private property, which brought “very good success.” The colonists immediately became responsible for their own actions (and those of their immediate families), not for the actions of the whole community.
In Plato’s ideal realm, private property would be abolished or curtailed and most inhabitants reduced to slavery, supervised by high-minded, ascetic guardians.

County planners argued that by simply proposing a public trail, the county does not demonstrate designs on private land and that private property rights are not being threatened.
But Locklin said the state would never invoke eminent domain to build a trail, nor could a trail be built across private property by any other means without the owner’s consent.
"The state is not going to dictate to a private landowner where a trail is going to be or how we’re going to do it," she said.
