Sorry wrong spot. Should read: The term stolen is a poor choice as you cannot steal what no one owns. I believe that Swinehart did not mean it literally, but that is one of the reasons I said he goes too far. But you are missing the point. You cannot privatize the air or sky, yet we all use it. If I burn tires on my property and the smoke blows into my neighbor’s house, does my neighbor have any right to complain?
