  • Mark Nix"Landowners United to Defend Private Property Rights" By Mark Nix, Executive Director, South Carolina Landowners Association, Columbia, South Carolina; Speech to the Eighth Annual Conference on Private Property Rights (PRFA, Albany, N.Y. October 23, 2004)
    This speech includes good advice for all property rights groups, including: Form alliances with homeowners associations, churches, and other groups to defend property rights. Frame the issues to be understood. Warn people that government is "taking away your property's value," instead of about "zoning." Get the news out to your members at least once a month.
