This chapter discusses an argument that we should nevertheless be committed to equal property rights in external resources, on account of our (broadly liberal) commitment to freedom as a fundamental value. In order to demonstrate the problem with this argument, we have to return to the original egalitarian Robinsonade that was invoked to make the case for basic income.

Keywords:   equal property rights, resources, freedom, Pareto optimality, Robinsonade
