Potentiality, Actuality, and "Stick"-Theory
The "Bundle of Rights" picture of property purports to explain the facilitative aspect of the powers that go with ownership by treating potential property interests that an owner may _confer_ as pre-existing rights that an owner may _transfer_ to others. This misleads, rather than enlightens, confusing potentiality with actuality. Importantly, it also draws our attention away from the difficult conceptual issue regarding the transfer of rights.
