Sage Examples -or- Why Commies suck!

The latest words of wisdom from one of my favorite sage's Prof. Walter E. Williams is up on Today he gives some great examples of "property rights = human rights" and ends with this:

As President John Adams (1797-1801) put it, "Property is surely a right of mankind as real as liberty." Adding, "The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence."
