--Poor Richard (talk) 06:38, 30 October 2012 (UTC)All rights, including property rights, are the products of contract. Regulation and enforcement of contracts (and thus rights) is a matter of jurisprudence and jurisdiction. Law determines what rights may be inalienable in a given jurisdiction, just as law determines what contracts are legal or illegal. This is all a matter of LAW. All theories based on or derived from "natural law," "natural rights," or economics are irrelevant to the question of rights and property except to the extent that such ideas influence the evolution of jurisprudence. Personally I would rather see jurisprudence based on empirical equity and general utility than on philosophy, religion, ideology, or economic theory. --Poor Richard (talk) 06:38, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
