Private Property. Except in the case of an emergency involving public safety or service interruption to a large number of subscribers, the Operator shall give reasonable notice to the property owners or legal tenants prior to entering upon any private premises, and said notice shall specify the work to be performed, provided that in the case of construction operations, such notice as provided in this Agreement shall be delivered or provided at least two (2) days prior to entry.

Private Property. In this thesis, I shall take ‘private property’ to refer primarily to the ownership relation that a person has with some thing that exists externally to them, and of which a necessary condition is that this ‘owner/owned-thing’ relationship can be exclusive and exclusionary, and that the owner’s option to make the ownership exclusive and exclusionary is protected by a moral right.47 There are many other understandings of what it is for someone to have an ownership relationship with an external thing, aside from my minimal focus on that relationship’s exclusive and exclusionary nature, and I shall discuss some of those understandings below where relevant. However, this feature on which I am focusing is, as above, the problematic-seeming necessary condition of a Lockean conception of individual ownership that I believe needs reconciling with Lockean-liberal commitments. And as it is a necessary condition, this problem must be solved for any xxxxxx reconciliation to take place; a xxxxxx reconciliation incorporating other problematic aspects may well require further work, but the problem 47 In line with Xxxxx, as I shall discuss in Chapter 4, I shall take one’s person not to be identical with one’s body. See, e.g., his thought experiment about the prince and the cobbler: Xxxxx, Human Understanding, 142-143 (Book II, xxvii, §15). I shall also contend in Chapter 4 that whilst human beings naturally own themselves, including their bodies — indeed, that this is the only instance of the ‘natural’, rather than acquired, ownership of things — that one human being can never own another. I shall use this throughout as an important example of the limits baked into the Lockean approach to private property. I have identified must be solved, nonetheless. Beyond this, I am largely happy to accept the distinctions Xxxxxxx makes between different types of property systems, wherever relevant. This pertains particularly to his description of a private- property system as being one in which the rules governing access to and control of material resources are organised around the idea that resources are on the whole separate objects each assigned and therefore belonging to some particular individual.48 However, whilst I shall occasionally engage with arguments addressing other kinds of property system aside from private property, my focus will remain on the grounding of individual moral property rights. My enquiry will not, therefore, involve attempting to determine the detailed wo...
