At Econ Log, Brian Caplan asks “Do Indians Rightfully Own America?” Caplan’s post wades into the thicket of libertarian property rights arguments as the method of adjudicating justice. I’ll refrain from engaging the rights scenarios given by high libertarians Robert Nozick and John Locke that are mentioned in Caplan’s piece, and instead draw from the first Liberty Law Talk podcast I did, which was with Walter Olson on his recent book, Schools for Misrule. Olson spends significant time in the book on the Indian land reclamation suits launched in the 1970s by various tribes, in conjunction with activist lawyers, accusing mostly middle class and, in some cases, wealthy homeowners of unjustly possessing the land their homes rest on. One suit even wanted to repossess the land that Syracuse University occupies and the current homes on Cape Cod. Chicago, somewhat humorously, was also in their sights.
