A gentle reminder ...

The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

Is property a civil right?

I'm at the Bill of Rights Institute and that was the question proposed by their president, Tony Woodlief.
His argument is that the founders didn't make the distinction between natural rights. All rights, including the right to property, are civil rights.
He traces the separation to the 1870s and the 1930s. He makes a compelling argument...still processing.
