Tout Alors

In property rights is implicit the right to buy and sell what one has bought. When it comes to ticket touting this basic right is violated by the State quite flagrantly. If you buy a ticket to some event and sell it at a profit why the hell should the State have anything to say about it or criminalise such an entrepreneurial act?  I have yet to hear why selling a ticket one has bought is any different from selling anything else one has bought and this wanton demonisation of ticket touts by governments is as sinister and pernicious as it is profoundly immoral and unethical. An assault on free trade should not be countenanced for first they came for the ticket touts...
