I cleaned out comment spam targeted mainly at the Who Owns You post and next thing you know I see the question, presented as the bottom line of political philosophy, in a book I’m reading. By Dawn’s Early Light has turned out to be fantastic. I did put it down briefly to finish something else

At around 80% through, I’m looking forward to the sequel that has yet to be published. For what it’s worth, the character’s offhand answer to that question was nobody, but that’s close enough to the same as you do, you own yourself.
