This is another weekly installment of my capitalist posts of the week. It's the time where I share what I liked around the net.

You should check out my post on the entitlement attitude of some people that makes them think they can steal intellectual property.

I've always hated Apple, and a lot of it had to do with the type of customers they had and the fact that they steal to make their products, but Apple wants a Ma Bell monopoly.

Google is working with the Lunar X prize to the first privately funded group that can land a robot of some sorts on the moon and have it transmit information back to earth.

John Stossel calls for ending the drug war, not because he wants to get high, but because he believes in the most important property right, owning your body.

    You should read Stephan Kinsella on IP. The notion of stealing intellectual property is flawed.

    This article by Jeffrey Tucker is a good start.

    I disagree with that article. It suggests that this is about efficiency or market success. It isn't. It's irregardless.

    I'm defending what is right. Hard work, even if it doesn't result in something tangible is of value.

    Stealing someones hard work at making music, is no different than a boss stealing the "hard work" of their employees by refusing to pay them.

    I have no plans to support "looters" that steal the ideas and plans of good people.

    Good people that create things in their mind shouldn't have to fear parasites are out there going to rip off their hard work and profit from it.

    It's not fair, it's not right and I will never support such an ideal.
