An idea I picked up from Stephan Kinsella is that you can’t “own your labor,” because labor is not an object that can be owned but a process, an act.

It’s an act of laboring.

You can own wood, but not “chopping wood.” You can own a house but not “building a house.” It is senseless to speak of owning actions rather than owning things.
