About private property¶
The concept of private property is one of the basements of human civilizations. We generally accept the idea that individual humans own certain goods. Every human or group of humans has the right to own objects. These objects can be mobile or immobile.
Let’s deliberately exclude immaterial goods and intellectual property in this section because they are another topic.
Owning something does not only mean the right of using it but also the responsibility of using it in a way which does not inflict the human rights of others.
The owner of an object is responsible for managing and using this object. Which implies that they have the right of deciding whether and how to make it available to others.

The result of intellectual work cannot be private property.
