Property and Stewardship
Most laws aiming at protecting the environment limit private property rights to some extent. This chapter explores the meaning and value of private property rights, their relationship to political freedom, and reasons for limiting those rights. In addition, it discusses moral arguments for voluntarily recognizing community interests in private property and for exercising property rights in a way that is consistent with the ideal of stewardship.
