There have been times in my life where ownership has been a bit of a buzzkill. For example, before I became a homeowner, my parents took the car for a test drive. I sat in the back seat and tried to figure out what I thought of it. It wasn’t until several months later that I realized how dumb I had been to ever assume I knew what I was driving.
This is also a time when I started to get the feeling that I could do better than my parents. I actually learned a lot from my dad. I got a lot more out of driving a car that was not a car. So I think I am a lot more aware of what kind of ownership I want my life to be around.
Of course, this is all anecdotal. The real question is, has anyone ever actually asked you what kind of ownership you want your life to be around? It’s only when a person lives their life completely without understanding that they become self-aware and they feel free and responsible for everything that they do. The truth is that the idea of ownership is so alien to us that most of the time we don’t question it.
So I guess the reality is that you are free to do anything that you want with your life. For example, I can take a nice walk in the park or go to a nice dinner, and I can even go to the movies or go to a nice lunch.
One of the things that makes our lives so exciting and meaningful is that the things that we do with our own life are also done by others. So, if I go to the park and get on the merry-go-round, that is owned by the public, that is done by the public, that is my responsibility as well.
The main problem with ownership is that it is not necessarily always clear-cut. It is important to remember that what is owned by the public is not necessarily owned by the person. The public owns the merry-go-round, the public owns the park, the public owns the movie theater, but the owner of the merry-go-round is free to go on it whenever he wants. When we go to the park, we still own the amusement park.
The problem is that the government can’t really own us, so the owners of these businesses can’t really own us. The same is true of ownership in real life. It’s a bit more murky, but it’s pretty clear that if we own something, it’s because we want to own it. As soon as you say, “yes, I own it,” the person owning that thing is automatically not the same person that owns it.
So the answer to the question, “Who will own the merry-go-round?” is never “the government.” The answer is always, “I will.” There is a good reason why every new owner is given a key to the merry-go-round. It’s the only place the government can’t get to us.
If you own something, you have to be the rightful owner of it, whether you want to be or not. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you own a car, for example, you can drive it anywhere you want whenever you want, but you’re not legally allowed to drive it in a parking lot or in your driveway.
I have had some owners who have tried to buy cars off of the web, but they were usually unable to find out the true story. As it turns out, the owner of this car, a guy named John, got into a fight with some kids who took his car. He wanted to take the car back, but his car had a GPS tracker built in to it.
