Customary property rights are mutually recognized by the members of society without necessarily a dictate from authority. While statutory property rights are granted and recognized by an authority often in opposition to customary understanding of property rights. Customary property is obtained through mixing one’s labor with natural resources, often called the homesteading principle by libertarians. Statutory property is often claimed by an act of enclosure and a legal deed. Conservatives hate political democracy because it interferes with statutory property rights, where the propertyless can vote for welfare and affirmative action. Libertarians hate political democracy because they hate political authority interfering with customary property rights at all.
