Small scale personal prob.
Ok so I’ve got a question for y’all regarding an interaction I just had.
So I recently moved to a larger and famously liberal city. I’ve been here a few months. Last night I went out to walk my dog and saw my neighbor (we share a back-alley / yard situation) having a bbq with a bunch of people.
In an attempt to be the friendly neighbor I walked into his backyard, introduced myself to the crowd of guests – then found the owner of the house to announce myself and say hi.
He made it clear I was not welcome and that this was a family gathering. I apologized, thanked him, and departed immediately.
Did I violate his property? I’m asking from a strictly philosophical perspective. The issue for me is that I entered his backyard. I feel confident that I didn’t do anything immoral. Am I just a small town hick with a warped idea of what’s ok? Just interested to see what y’all think.
Edit: just to be perfectly clear – my interest in bringing this up is whether it’s an idioligical violation of property – I’m not looking for personal validation.
