No-one will mind if you express these views (snicker snicker). Really, the members of this list are slow to anger (ha, *snort*), and don't hold the kinds of strong opinions which could lead to inflamation (guffaw, no , no, please stop).
I for one would say, wade right in, go crazy. No one will be influenced by any argument on this subject, as recent history shows, but this is no reason to back off.
To become a full player in this all-in-brawl, just put "Re: Property Rights" in the subject line of your message.
