About 2 or 3 years ago in another list related to another one of my 
interests there was a post related to the issue of property rights. 
Someone on this list brought up this subject today and I wanted to add 
to it, but my email-browser crashed before I could. My restore is 5 days 
old and I do not remember who this 'someone' is.

The person in this other list (about 2-3 years ago) provided some 
information concerning Ayn Rand that appears to be the basis of the 
'suspicions' many hold of a conspiracy and fear of the conservation 
movement (part of the conservation movement includes declaring some 
species as endangered). According to this individual, Ayn Rand held a 
philosophical position that there is an elite group of individuals (not 
named) who are bent on taking away our freedoms and suppressing us. 
According to Rand, the issue of conservation is being used, and maybe 
was even created, by the elite group to further their objectives. Does 
anyone know more about this? I may have some of my facts wrong, or the 
other individual may have misinterpreted Ayn Rand.
