This speech was the "capper" at the San Juan County CAPR (Citizens Alliance for Property Rights) forum last month in Friday Harbor, Washington. San Juan County is the most liberal county in Washington (at least if you count the fact that it voted more heavily for Gore, Kerry, and Obama than did any other county, including the PRS--People's Republic of Seattle).
A grotesque regime of statist control of personal liberty, known as the Growth Management Act, is implemented in what are called Critical Areas Ordinances. This forum was to discuss upcoming changes to the County's CAO structure. I was asked by the hosting organization to put the whole property rights issue in perspective, and this short speech was my humble effort. Sorry for the poor quality, but the audio is clear enough and there's not much value lost in the fact that you can't see my face that clearly.
