Via Emmanuel Taban.  Originally shared by Mitch Wagner, who wrote:

'A thoughtful and enjoyable essay by Cory Doctorow on the tragic fallacy
of John Locke's labor theory of property, which is fundamental to how we
think about property in Western society. The labor theory has resulted
in the genocide of millions, robbed millions more of financial benefit
from their work -- which the Locke theory deems as worthless -- and also
justified a Chicago chain restaurant owner's attempt to trademark the
word "aloha."'
