My husband,Don Llywelyn, was just reading a book about the Magna Carta. We
sometimes discuss our current books and he was talking about the concepts of
ownership as it evolved from the Feudal/Vassal system. You might look into
the Magna Carta.
Historical law is quite interesting.

Subject: [Ansteorra] Modern and Period thoughts.
I was talking with a roommate about his thesis the other day, and we
ended up going into the definitions of the word 'franchise', and how its
use to describe a business model has changed the way the word is used.
Then I went to an event, and ended up thinking about the discussion
while I was there. This led me around to thinking about a comparison of
the modern Franchise business system and the old Feudal/Vassal system of
government. The idea gets even more interesting when you realize that
much of the money that comes into McDonalds Corporate is that they own
the land which the stores are on. Possibly a thesis topic for someone
in a government, business, or law major. Any thoughts from anyone?
