I have been invited to join Lee Ulansey on the HumCPR Show tomorrow night on KMUD at 7:00 for a philosophical discussion about the balance between individual/property rights and community interests. When does one trump the other and to what extent? What are the criteria for justifying community/government intervention with regard to individually-owned property? Is it hypocritical for someone who has chained himself/herself to trees in the past to be allied with HumCPR in the General Plan Update controversy? Is it appropriate for “urban” residents to be involved in discussions about regulating rural properties (and vice-versa)? When does one individuals property rights impair another’s?
I’m sure we’ll move into specific issues, but we will try to keep a general philosophical focus.
