I don't think it's reality, but a worthy goal? Yes. It would seem the ultimate expression of the "I'm okay, you're okay", "Don't tread on me", "Live free or die" Idealism that Mankind has always been groping for. As for one's children ... society has established a pretty well defined 'ownership' period. Even so, can you say your really "own" a thing unless you are free to destroy it? I'm not sure. Religion seems to grant us this power, but in the truly enlightened society we all dream about, not so much. Of course, I am not advocating or desiring to harm mine or anyone's child, but are we not 'destroying' a child's natural inclinations as we rear them? Do we have the right to program them with our various preconceptions, religious or otherwise? Probably not. To grant them the 'freedom from ownership' we apparently desire will take a serious re-evaluation of how we raise our children.<quoted text>You agree with, "No other person, or group of persons owns your life. Nor do you own the lives of others."? Somehow I doubt that.
Of course, as we surrender our dignity and ambition in pursuit of various 'entitlements' we are essentially exchanging our 'ownership' to the government for these goods and services. Most do so desperately (if not enthusiastically) thus defining our reality as it exists.
Anyway ... off to work. I certainly don't 'own' my time.
