Letter: Mindset smacks of collectivism

In his letter of March 10, Craig S. Chisesi rattles off a long list of rules as spelled out by landowner Ross Talbott (Talbott Enterprises Inc.) in relation to those to whom he chooses to rent parcels of his property. Mr. Chisesi goes on to compare these rules to regulations made and enforced by government entities upon those owning private property within their jurisdictions.

To attempt such a comparison is to demonstrate a profound lack of understanding of both the inherent rights of private property owners and the just role of government within a society. Mr. Chisesi’s mindset smacks of collectivism.
