Yes you do. You can choose to be a mechanic. You can work for someone, or if you are good enough you can start your own. You can cut hair, do concrete work, do small engine repair whatever. You can do it for someone, or if you think your good enough and smart enough start your own business.
Simple answer is no you don’t. Your right to make a living doesn’t necessarily always not intrude on anothers rights as well. There is a hard to come by balance. Example. Say you have a nice home, on 10 acres. Someone buys the 10 acres next to yours and puts in an animal rendering plant. How would that effect you? How many other property owners would this also effect on the other three sides of the new plant on 10 acres, and how many bordering those as well.
Now you can convert that to small engine repair. The smell of solvents used to clean the engins, the traffic of people bringing items for your to repair/pick up. Delivery trucks. The noise of running the engine’s to test them.
It’s sometimes an imperfect balance, but local officials attempt to keep the balance to both the person who wants to run a business from their home, and the neighbors it effects.
each of those four have exactly the same individual right. its not cumulative. to treat it as cumulative is to confer greater rights to a group than an individual. in measuring which outweighs, each of the 4’s right must be measured against the one, as individuals.
I was going with 10 acre parcells. 10 acres in the middle and 4 neighbors abuting the property (with their own 10 acres of property as well. Techically it could be 8 due to 4 having “corners” with the other property.
In reality, a lot of cases it can be more than the 4. Here for example, a home occupation permit of a dog grooming business got called before the countil. All the residents on the street objected to A) the amount of traffic on their residential street. B) the wast water (with dog hair) beind dumped in the gutter and cloging up the storm drains C) the noise of the dogs that had been dropped off for the day barking while waiting their turn for grooming, then being picked up by owners after.
Did their right to “happiness” in running a business outweigh the happiness of all the others (12 total) on the block?
