Yeah mate... you too... and that IS the point.

You miss it because there isn't any LEGAL way to assert ownership of your share of the atmosphere. Because the law is limited in that respect and you are by your argument, asserting that it should remain so.

Nothing like a libertarian for making a complete botch of a basic and even philosophically attractive principle. As soon as it becomes inconvenient the two-faced nature of the philosophy becomes apparent.

Fill your boots with the legal catch-22 AND the risible logic.
