Happy Birthday, Adys Ann! As I patiently explain in my paper “Lockdowns as Takings” (available here via SSRN), in place of unlawful eviction moratoria or ad hoc stimulus checks, our political leaders should have remained resolute and faithful to our first constitutional principles from the start. How? By requiring the payment of just compensation to all “non-essential” workers whose labor rights were taken under State and local lockdown orders. After all, as John Locke taught us long ago, labor is not only a form of property; it is the source of all other property rights. #LaborIsProperty #RuleOf Law

Yes, it is really awesome how much LABOR is respected in this nation compared to CAPITAL. Our constitution was built by and for land-owners, not for ploughsmen.
