Ilya Somin reacts
to an incident in which Bill Ayers, not a respector of other people's property, invokes property rights to oust a nosy reporter from his doorstep:
I want to emphasize that this is a small example of how property rights play an important role in protecting unpopular people. Private property gives minorities with unpopular views, lifestyles, or identities, a secure space in which they are protected from the hostility of the majority.
FYI, like both Volokh brothers, Somin was born in the Soviet Union, a nation famous for its war against the very institution of private property. See his curriculum vitae here.
