Most people believe that ownership is absolute.  You work hard, earn the money to buy something and once you have bought, and paid for it, you own it.  That includes property.  And in the old days, that is exactly how things worked but over the years, the notion of absolute ownership has been watered down.  In the case of property ownership, first through local restrictions and eventually through mandatory memberships in deed restricted developments. 
 
Are these restrictions limited to just property ownership or are there other forces at work to strip Americans of rights and liberties? 

Just listen what Professor McKenzie has to say on these and other issues.
